Emilia javanica

Emilia javanica or Irish Poet is one of my favourite new annuals with delicate tassled flowers in the deepest, richest orange. This looks brilliant in the garden and vase with Ageratum 'Red Sea'.

Care Tips

Water regularly, attracts pollinators. Will occasionally self-sow depending on location.
