Description

Your late spring, early summer garden will be transformed by these two – a classic and beautiful pair. Bees and butterflies love these varieties so plant them together for a swathe of colour in a nectar haven.

This collection contains 1 packet each of:
  • Eschscholzia californica 'Orange King' – a tall, tangerine Californian poppy with delicate, silvery foliage. A perfect garden plant for edging paths, giving a naturalistic feel to any garden. Will self-sow.
  • Verbena rigida – is the small and more densely flowery version of verbena which flowers for four or five months at a stretch. I love its bright purple flowers which go on and on and on.

Care Tips

Deadhead regularly to prolong flowering.
