Description

Exquisite auricula, which unlike some of its family, is easy to grow, flowering every spring, with clumps gradually bulking up until they need splitting and dividing to fill any north-facing window box or container.

Care Tips

Deadhead and remove dead or damaged leaves as necessary. If growing in pots, re- pot annually with a loam-based potting compost, leaf mould, peat or peat-substitute, and plenty of grit for drainage.
