Description

We trialled this first in our cut flower garden in 2019 and loved it so much, flowering away in its corner for five months, we grew it also in prominent pots on our doorstep for 2020.

This is a great mix of purples, soft to bright. You’ve got all here, airy, elegant, skeletal and stylish like sea lavender, arranged in a large urn or vase, to last right through winter. These are a new found firm favourite and highly recommended.

Care Tips

Avoid overwatering. Keep cutting for the vase to prolong blooming.
