Description

A true Regal purple, rather than crimson, these were originally bred for the cut flower trade, and after trialling, we have become obsessed with them just as much as border and container plants (with support) as for whopper stems for a vase. They just keep flowering!

Care Tips

They will need staking, or growing up through horizontally stretched jute netting. Keep picking (not to the ground but to above a pair of leaves), and these will keep flowering for months at a time.
