Biology

The plants typically flower from May to July and set seed in July and August. They avoid drought by growing in winter and flowering in early summer when there is usually enough moisture available. However, a wet summer can change this pattern. The seed can lie dormant for many years and it is possible that disturbance of the soil on former known sites may encourage germination.
