Adding colour to garden


Adds height to bed. Striking colour with black stems. Very easy to grow. Fills gaps in bed and doesn't need staking.

I purchased 2 of these plants. One is in my new border and one in a large pot on a small patio at the front of my house. Both have produced beautiful flowers and stems as described and I am delighted with the fantastic display of interesting floral architecture. I am looking forward to next year to see how much more they will spread. Excellent purchase thank you.




Fantastic display of colours standing up proudly.


Used in a flower bed to provide a strong focal point which it did perfectly in first year.




I would recommend


Good, strong healthy plants. Flowered beautifully. Looking forward to them getting better and better.
