Description

A very early flowering variety, often flowering for Christmas. Flowers emerge infused with a deep, purple-red tint fading to a pleasant pale pink, before seedpods continue the interest into spring.

Care Tips

Will tolerate a wide range of conditions, but does best in fertile, rich moist but well-drained soil which is preferably heavy, and neutral or alkaline. Plant in a position out of strong, cold winds in dappled shade.
