Cultivation & Habitat

Seed – sow early spring in a greenhouse and only just cover the seed. Germination is usually quick and good. Prick out the seedlings into individual pots as soon as they are large enough to handle and grow them on fast. Plant them out in late spring, after the last expected frosts. Whilst this is fine for small quantities, it would be an extremely labour intensive method if larger amounts were to be grown. The seed can be sown in situ in the middle of spring though it is then later in coming into flower and may not ripen its seed in a cool summer.
Succeeds in any well-drained soil in full sun[200]. This robust form of S. viridis may be of hybrid origin, resulting from crossing with S. italica[266]. Unlike S. italica the spikelets are shed whole[266].
E. Asia – Japan.
