Burgundy buds open to reveal glowing scarlet 'petals' surrounding a radiant yellow centre. These plants are easy to grow and great value for money as they will usually produce lots of flowers over a long period of time. A firm favourite for the garden as they will carry on flowering when many other plants have given up completely. This variety is made for a 'hot bed' so mix it with late flowering yellows and oranges for a shock of colour.

Garden Care: Insert twiggy prunings early in the season to provide invisible and effective support.Apply a thick 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch around the base of the plant in Spring taking care not to cover the crown.
