Description

On and on this diascia goes, flowering its socks off all summer and autumn. We had five plugs planted in a huge pot on our kitchen terrace and it looked cheerfully pink and pretty longer than anything else.

Care Tips

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. Protct from slugs and snails.
