    A tough vigorous plant that will tolerate most conditions, including dry soils and seaside locations has been grown on a ½ standard clear stem, perfect for adding structure and interest to borders or pots. The dense, evergreen lustrous almost metallic green leaves, (initially can be spotted) with silvery undersides are packed on to the clipped stems to form a ball head. In the autumn it can also produce very small, but well-scented, creamy-white flowers which open to fill the air with their delicious perfume.

    These classically styled Allure Doppio pots resemble traditional clay but are made from a mix of synthetic material and wood fibres, producing a natural look and feel with the durability of plastic.

    Both UV and frost resistant, the chunky pots can be used inside or outside all year round.
    Measurements: Ø35cm x H29cm.

    These ½ standard plants have a 40cm clear stem beneath a 40cm head

  • Garden care: Clip established plants to keep their shape, but this may reduce the amount of flowers produced. Remove any plain green-leaved shoots as soon as they appear, cutting them back to the origin
