This is unquestionably one of the most powerfully impulsive flower colours to be found recently in any introduction in the horticultural world. The top petals are a full blooded, strong vibrant red, in clear contrast to the lower petals creamy whiteness. Lots of flowers, even in height and with universal appeal. Use it in beds, borders etc, to brighten up the garden or in tubs, planters, on the patio or even as a windowsill pot plant.
Sowing Instructions: Sow late winter to mid spring at 13-15 C in a good seed compost, just covering the seed with compost. Keep soil damp but not wet. Germination usually takes 7-21 days. Keep the soil temperature below 19 C.
Growing Instructions: When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant into 7.5 cm pots and grow in cooler conditions. Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for 10-15 days before planting out after all risk of frost, 15 cm apart in a sunny spot.
