More Details

This is the diascia which won me over to this family with simple, open-faced, mini, almost foxglove-like spires.

This variety is reilably perennial if given frost protection and flowers for six months. We now use it in our borders as well as pots - hugely recommended.

Of all the items I purchased this year, only the Erigeron survived. With regards the other purchases they were struggling when I received them or died within a few days of potting up.
