More Details

Often flowering all summer and autumn, this soft apricot is fabulous bursting from containers and baskets, or planted along a path or front of border. Certainly one of the hardiest diascia we have grown, having come through the last two winters unprotected in a container. Looks great paired with other wispy type plants such as Gaura and Erigeron.
