Description

A truly supreme form with extra large, almost dahlia-like cherry velour blooms, accompanied by the luxurious scent of chocolate. This variety makes the perfect choice for any sunny border or terrace. And with the largest flowers among atrosanguineus cultivars, measuring 7cm (3in) across, each flower makes the ideal perch for bees and butterflies alike.

Care Tips

Deadhead to encourage flowering. Mulch to protect from frosts or cover with horticultural fleece. In colder parts of the country, lift plants before the first frosts and store somewhere frost-free over the winter.
