Stylish and unusual, like Venetian marbled paper. I love to scatter the odd flower stem of this in with the rich 'Liberty Classic Crimson', or arrange as a single stem.

These seeds germinated well and I have many plants as a result. They have just started flowering, and they vary widely both in co!our and degree of mottling; some are plain colours mostly fushia and yellow, which if you plant in specific colour blocks like me is a bit of a problem!
