Sesamum or Sesame is a small genus found in tropical Asia and Africa within the unicorn plant family (Pedaliaceae). Plants have most ornamental, foxglove-like trumpet flowers in shades of brilliant bluish purple rose. The flowers are followed by thickened capsules containing the widely used sesame seed (especially the species Sesamum indicum). Plants are fast growing annuals to semiperennials growing in any rich, well drained soil in a sunny spot. Keep pot plants drier in winter at a minimum of some 15°C in full sun.
Sow seeds flat in any fertile, well drained soil in a sunny spot at a minimum of some 20°C. Grow as perennial pot plants or grow as annuals and transplant seedlings to the open garden in early summer.
