ARNEBIA - "Prophet Flower" - Hardy and Half Hardy Annuals
Author: Charles Henry Curtis
ARNEBIA - "Prophet Flower" Described.
ARNEBIA - "Prophet Flower" - The Hardy Annual Arnebias (Boraginacece) are by no means well known, but here, as in the case of so many beautiful Annuals, it only needs some enterprising seedsman to grow and show them well to ensure their popularity. The following species are hardy, but A. cornuta does best when raised under glass from seeds sown in March, though both A. cornuta and A. Griffithii may be raised out-of-doors from an April sowing. Each is a delightful subject, and the first is a capital plant for the border, whilst A. Griffithii is useful alike for the border and the Rock garden.
ARNEBIA - "Prophet Flower"
Only the two annual species are in cultivation. A cornuta, 1.5 foot, becomes a dense mass of yellow through the Summer and Autumn, and each flower has five black spots that fade to maroon in a day or so; A. Griffithii, 9 inches, has rich yellow flowers, and is a native of North-west India.
