The name is slightly deceptive as the larger outer petals that form are white. They do however have a ruff of pale yellow petals at the centre of each flower that give it a lemon hue. The glossy bright evergreen leaves really set the beautiful flowers off a treat. If happy, these plants will produce literally masses of flowers that fall from the plant when they are done and create a beautiful carpet around its base. Avoid planting in a spot that gets morning sun though as this may cause the flowers to turn brown before their time.

  • Garden care: To prevent damage to the emerging buds and flowers protect from cold dry winds and early morning sun. Water established plants in dry weather to prevent bud drop. Apply a balanced liquid fertiliser in mid-spring and again in June. Top-dress annually with shredded bark or well-rotted leaf mould. After flowering lightly trim or prune any branches that spoil the appearance of the plant. Protect container-grown specimens in winter by wrapping with bubble wrap or hessian.
