Description

If I was only allowed to take one plant to a desert island, this would be in the running. It flowers May to November with petals cut from silk velvet. It is unfussy and easy to grow in a pot or border.

Care Tips

Protect young plants from frost and plant in a sunny, free-draining spot. Do not prune back in winter, keep current years growth and remove when new shoots appear. Mulch annually.
