This is a beautiful and delicate plant which starts flowering at Easter (and continues for 3 months) from sowing in August, or sown in March will flower all summer long.
We trialled it at Perch Hill last year and it transformed our spring greenhouse and window ledges. You can also sow and grow as a normal half-hardy annual in spring for summer flowering. Highly recommended.
- Easy for beginners
- Perfect for bees, butterflies and pollinating insects
