Description

Often flowering all summer and autumn, this mix of soft apricot, ruby pink and white is fabulous bursting from containers and baskets, or planted along a path or front of border. These are three of the best perennial diascias around.

This collection contains 3 plants each of:
  • Diascia barberae 'Ruby Field'
  • Diascia barberae 'Blackthorn Apricot'

Care Tips

Blackthorn Apricot' and 'Ruby Field' are frost hardy but 'Divara Blush' is perennial if protected from winter frosts. Keep deadheading and cut back after each flush of flowers to encourage more blooms.
