Description

One of our most beautiful native wildflowers, this exotic-looking beauty is in fact easy to grow and happy even coming up to flower in a pot. Use them for table decorations just as they come, and then plant them in your garden, at the front of a border or in the lawn, to enjoy next year and from then on. They self-seed.

Care Tips

Can be naturalised in grass but make sure you don't cut the foliage until June/July. Avoid disturbance and never cut them right down because they may stop flowering. Top dress annually with manure.
