The flowers are stunning but a bit leggy on the stems which really need good support.

Easy to grow, no special attention required. Lots of lovely flowers, about 3-4 inches diameter, sumptuous dark pink and glossy. Radiating out from the heart of each bloom is a green four-pointed eye, which is transluscent, so appears illuminated when the sun shines. LONG flowering season; mine are still producing flowers after starting four months ago! Get some, they are great!

Beautiful plant with many flowers blooming together. I was attracted to the plant when visiting Jordens Mill near Biggleswade.
