Description

Constantly busy with butterflies and bees, this beautiful airy Californian native perennial flowers long and hard from mid-summer to the end of autumn. It is widely grown in the USA as a long vase life cut flower, and is hardy enough to withstand our winters.

Care Tips

Avoid overwatering - this likes dry conditions. Flowering time varies greatly depending on location and weather conditions. Some areas will see it already flowering in June, whereas in cooler spots it may be much later.
