Description

The mix of soft lime and gentle orange-peach makes this a super-versatile flower which seems to go with almost everything. It’s lovely with crisp white and just as beautiful lighting up dark rich reds and crimsons.

An exciting new cut flower and container filler and a new addition to the ‘Queeny Lime’ series, which thrive in our damper, greyer climate. This came out top in our trials last summer along with ‘Queeny Lime Red’ (a favourite now for two or three years).

Care Tips

Water once a week and stake plants individually. Tidy up any dead or dying leaves and ensure good air circulation to avoid botrytis. Picking or deadheading is necessary to prolong blooming and encourage branching.
