Description

One of my current favourite border plants and cut flowers. Among the very best foliage plants you can grow looking good for at least six months in the garden. A non-petalled flowering form of Sweet Williams, with vibrant green pompom heads right through summer and autumn.

Care Tips

Water once a week and mulch once established to keep the soil moist. A balanced liquid feed every couple of months will encourage more blooms. Cut flowers for the vase or deadhead regularly.
