Sowing and cultivation 

Virginia grass seed requires cold stratification to germinate.

Mix the seeds with a moist substrate (vermiculite, perlite or sand) and place them in a plastic bag in the refrigerator for 60 days.

You can then sow the seeds 5 mm deep. Do not let the soil dry out during germination, which will last 7 to 15 days.

You can also sow directly in the garden in the fall, stratification will then take place naturally outside.

Physostegia adapts to several types of soil but prefers rich and humid soils.
