Three colours on one plant, this makes a pretty and harmonious collection. Brilliant for containers, as a cut flower and border filler.

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.
