Description

Beautiful velvet flowers that never stop coming. I grow this with lettuce (its flowers are edible) and in containers – it does brilliantly in both.

Care Tips

Prefers cool, protected, partial shade, especially in summer months with moist, but free draining soil or compost. Ideal edging a border or in a container.
