Blooms mainly in summer with about 8 weeks of colour, this is native to North America and is often found in the prairies there. Bees love it for its sweet nectar and our native bees are included here.

Most at home along streams and waterways on the prairies, it is at home in any garden that can reticulate its plants, it is hardy down to at least ?20 °C , and grows in full sun to part shade and any moist, well-drained soil.

Grow notes:

Culver’s root grows best in full sun and medium to wet, well-drained, humus-rich soil. It tolerates light shade, but too much shade may cause the plant to develop a weak central stem and fall over. Regular watering and a 10cm thick layer of mulch will help Culver’s root grow well in average soil.

Sow:

Put seeds into a zip lock bag and put them in the fridge for 6 weeks over winter or plant them direct into the garden in early winter, they need cold to break hibernation. Plant your seeds into rich moist and well drained soil in late Winter to mid spring. Cover seeds very lighy and press down, water in with a fine spray.

Keep seeds damp. Don’t allow them to dry out, if needed you can wrap them in plastic wrap right over the whole pot to keep moisture in.

Plant them out when a few inches tall.

Germination: 10 to 20 days at 15C to 20C

These can wait for the right conditions so don’t throw you pots out!
