Poached Egg Flower


Botanical Name: Limnanthes douglasii

The Poached Egg Flower is one of our earliest, and showiest annuals. Its cheery saucer-shaped yellow flowers are edged with white, and borne above fresh, pale-green leaves. Attractive to bees, it is also a very useful winter flowering pot plant.

We hope you enjoy these poached egg plant seeds, just another great example of flower seeds from Mr Fothergill’s!

Plant Height: 15cm

How To Grow

Sow directly into the flowering position thinly. Just cover the seeds and keep moist. Thin to 4 in. (10cm) apart. Autumn sowings should be made in a sheltered spot, or under cloches.
