Barnhaven double auricula strains
Barnhaven have been growing double auriculas for over half a century and we pride ourselves on maintaining our reputation for hardy, easy to grow plants in a stunning array of forms and colours. We hand pollinate our double auriculas every year in separate colour strains from carefully selected plants to ensure there are always new additions to our stock. Note that double auriculas don't always produce very much pollen so this is a painstaking affair, which involves using singles that have double genes. The plants you find here are all produced from these seed stains and are all unnamed unique plants that have been grown from seed. There is a wide range of forms and colours, most of them are scented.
Double auriculas are easy to grow and flower readily, producing lovely displays without much effort.
