A well branching plant with richly flowered stalks which has even more different tints than the low hyacinth-like flowers. Excellent cut flower and good dried flower. For drying cut the flowers towards the end of the full bloom. Hang upside down in small bunches in the shade in a dry spot where there is circulating wind. It is best to sow directly in the final spot in the garden. The spot should be warm and yet well ventilated due to its susceptibility to mildew. Be wary of snails.
