Comment

Erect form. Sow seed in situ in May.

"White to lilac summer flowers are followed by translucent, flattened seed heads. These will remain on the plant well into autumn, or if picked and dried, make excellent additions to dried flower arrangements. Given a sunny or partially shady site with fertile, moist, well-drained soil this charming biennial will happily self-seed. As the flowers are highly-attractive to butterflies and bees, they are perfect for naturalising in a wild garden, meadow, or at the woodland edge.

Sow the seeds in May-June straight into a well-prepared seed bed in early summer, planting them 2.5mm deep. Thin out as soon as they are large enough to handle, replanting the extras so there is approximately 30cm between each. Pinching out the tips as they grow will encourage bushier growth." from Crocus .

Available as seed from Shoot and Crocus in the UK with Seedaholic in Ireland and shipped to other countries

Companion Plants

Lunaria annua 'Munstead Purple', Centanthus ruber, Sedum 'Autumn Joy.

How to Grow Honesty, from The Telegraph of 25 January 2003:-
"White tulips - Tulipa 'Purissima' or Tulipa 'Spring Green' - are especially eye-catching when planted with the white-flowered honesty Lunaria annua 'Alba Variegata'.

If this is all too tasteful, mix the purple-flowered variety with orange tulips - Tulipa 'Ballerina' is ideal and its elegant flowers are also scented.

Purple honesty is particularly good against any of the spurges, the limier the green of their bracts the better. Euphorbia polychroma or Euphorbia palustris are at their most acidic when the honesty is in flower.

For an especially dramatic contrast, why not sow either the purple or white honesty among the red-suckering stems of Cornus alba sibirica."
