Description

I love the dark, luscious ruby reds and ‘Winston Churchill’ is one of the best, with large individual flower heads and long stems. It’s a winner in our trials.

Care Tips

Plant seedlings out during a mild spell March-May, providing support. Tie the stems into your framework on a regular basis and pinch out tendrils.
