    A new introduction with deepest purple petals (the outermost often with a smattering of lighter speckles), surround the spider-like creamy yellow centre. Their brooding colouring adds depth to the planting scheme when mixed with softer shades of pink and lilac.

  • Garden care: Add lots of well-rotted leaf mould or organic matter to the planting hole. Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted organic matter around the base of the plant in autumn and provide a top-dressing of general fertiliser each spring.

  • Harmful if eaten/skin irritant
