They are very easy and self-seed readily. Just cut off the dead flower stems, then, if you see black leaves, pull them off gently. You can pull off a fan and pop it in a pot to increase your stock. They like sun, and mine grow happily in gravel, so they can't be fussy about soil, can they?

No - Two, as far as I'm aware, June. I have the normal one, and a nicer one (I think!) called 'Aunt May', which is variegated - same flowers, though. Her trouble is that she isn't nearly as hardy, and I lost several last winter. :-((

Yes, Mrs MB. OH is always complaining about 'his' carpark gravel! :-((

There are several difference colours though June, purple, white and yellow. Ours are the wee alpine type ones I believe that Spritzh. has the larger variety.

Are yours S. striatum, though, Mrs MB? Haven't the alpine ones got different names after the 'Sysyrinchium'??

Probably, you'd need to check with himself! I'm brain dead right now lol!
