Flowers are blood red with an orangey centred glow. Flowering period: June – November. Height 30cm. Spread 30cm. Prefers full sun or partial shade with free-draining soil or compost.

All our plants are grown in pots to reduce the risk of pest and disease. At certain times of the year our perennials are potted up into larger containers as and when the plants need. This means that plant can have a root system that is between 0.5L and 1.4L during this period.
