Brand new variety with wonderful dusty beetroot buds that open to form chrysanthemum-like pom-pom shaggy heads. The flowers gradually fade to a mottled purple and white as they age. As it is such a compact plant it is perfect for potting up into containers to brighten up your patio in summer.

  • Garden care: In early spring cut back the previous year's stems to a pair of strong buds about 15-20cm (6-8in) above ground-level and apply a slow-release balanced fertiliser and a mulch of well-rotted garden compost around the plant avoiding the immediate crown.
