I could not be without this now. Deep velvet flowers against bright green foliage, it looks like something by Chanel. Give it a sheltered spot in case of wet summers.

Care Tips

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. Apply liquid fertiliser fortnightly to improve performance.
