More Details

A good performer in our perennials for picking trial. We loved the soft-coloured and bright plateaux of flowers in the garden and they make some of the best fillers in a bunch or vase. Sear the stem ends in boiling water for 20 seconds and leave them in cool water overnight before arranging. Keep picking hard to keep them flowering, or cut them back as they go over to bloom a second time.
