P. A winter-flowering plant with blue flowers which at that season is an attractive feature of the warm greenhouse, grown in John Innes Potting Compost and trained into bushiness by pinching out growths here and there. After flowering, re-pot and prune back. The best variety for amateurs is E. pulchellum (2 ft.) which can be increased by 2 in. long cuttings taken in spring.
