Like an English marigold in a giant’s world, with orange saucer-sized flowers with incredible centres, rich plain chocolate brown stipples and stripes. We love this for pots and vases.
Pinch out tips for bushier plants. Can survive winter in very well protected situations, keep sheltered from hard frosts. Water over hot summers and pick or deadhead regularly for flowers into autumn.
