Description

The plushest, lushest, richest crimson black velvet flower, with mint green buds. It needs a sheltered spot, and loves being grown under glass, but even without glass, I’d have to grow this.

Care Tips

For best results, provide a rich, light, well-drained soil in full sun. May require support. Pick or remove dead flowers to prolong flowering. Thrives also grown under glass.
