Pot size 9cm pot
9cm pot
  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: July to October
  • Hardiness: frost hardy (will need winter protection in cold areas)

    Vibrant red flowers that flare out at their lobed tips to show the white eye, form in dense racemes above the linear green foliage. They look splendid when planted in bold drifts through a hot themed border.

  • Garden care: Remove the faded blooms regularly to prolong flowering. Apply a dry mulch around the base of the plant to protect the roots from frost damage and cut back in spring when new shoots appear low down on the stem. Lift and divide congested clumps in spring.
