Planted in an urn with a heuchera centre piece. Trailed beautifully and with plenty of pretty flowers. Still looking healthy although no frost as yet. Lovely colour against the dark foliage of the heuchera ( purchased elsewhere)).

The most reliable and floriferous of the perlagoniums I have bought. Mine is now about 4 years old. I take it in to the greenhouse every winter and look after it and with a bit of high potash feed in the early summer it bursts with flowers again. My favourite.

What a fabulous colour! I planted these in a window box with lavender Munstead and they look gorgeous - a real treat to look at through our kitchen window.
