A new plant for the Autumn Jump Starter this year.
Easy to grow from both an Autumn sowing and/or a late winter sowing.
Autumn sown plants will flower from late May and will be slightly taller at 120-140cm.
Late Winter sown plants will flower around a month later and a tiny bit shorter 110-130cm.
Not quite as hardy as some of the seed varieties, but in our moderate UK climate Agrostemma grows quite happily in the shelter of an unheated greenhouse over winter.

Agrostemma githagos late Winter 2nd sowing
Agrostemma grows quickly from a late Winter sowing giving you plants about a month later than those grown from an Autumn Jump Start.
They are a bit shorter, but in my opinion plenty tall enough to be worth the effort, more details in the video.
