    A low growing tuberous perennial, which is much-loved for its large, black-eyed, red flowers, which appear in spring over mounds of finely dissected foliage. The velvet-like petals form large open bowls, and gradually open out even further before they fall to create saucer-like plates. They make charming cut flowers and look lovely at the front of a sunny border.

  • Garden care: Soak the tubers overnight in cool water and plant them in naturalistic drifts (it doesn't matter which way up) 5cm deep and 15cm apart from September to November.
