Description

Planted in the garden by Arthur Parkinson, this is invaluable for intense amethyst discs on healthy, non-mildewed plants right through autumn. This reminds me of fuzzy felt flowers when I was a child and I love it for that.

Care Tips

Although mildew resistant, it is wise not to crowd this plant, give it space to receive good air circulation.
