Description

Often flowering all summer and autumn, this soft apricot is fabulous bursting from containers and baskets, or planted along a path or front of border. Certainly one of the hardiest diascia we have grown, having come through the last two winters unprotected in a container. Looks great paired with other wispy type plants such as Gaura and Erigeron.

Care Tips

Perennial if kept dry through the winter. Keep deadheading and cut back after each flush of flowers to encourage more blooms and maintain a compact shape. Apply a regular liquid feed during the growing season if growing in a container
