Large single deep-pink flowerheads with greenish-yellow centres which gradually turn yellow appear in great abundance for a long period from late summer to early autumn. 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.

  • 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.
