Description

Josie, our Perch Hill head-gardeners favourite plant in our trials last year.

It has small, but very brilliantly coloured flowers all summer and right through to Christmas in a sheltered spot. This makes it a star for any pot or front of border combination.

Care Tips

Keep frost free and collect seeds rather than over wintering any plants.
