I brought a pot of this back from Greece in 2015 and fell in love with its rich coloured velvet flowers, so easy to mix with other things and bold enough in a pot on its own.
Deadhead to prolong the flowering period. These will work well in a container pot in a sunny position. Water well in the first two weeks, to prevent the plant from drying out.
