  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: well-drained, preferably poor soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June to August
  • Hardiness: hardy annual

    Super-sized, fully double flowers with a frilly, somewhat shredded appearance top the stout bristly stems throughout summer. A beautiful addition to cottage gardens, it blends beautifully with most shades of pink, purple and plum. After the petals fall, attractive seedheads develop, which will remain interesting well into autumn.

  • Garden care:They tend to resent root disturbance, so sow shallowly, directly into a well prepared bed in spring and water well. As the seedlings develop, thin them out to 30cm intervals keeping just the healthiest and most robust plants. Protect the emerging seedlings from slugs and snails. The seedheads can be dried and added to winter arrangements.

  • Sow: March-May

  • Flowering: June-August

  • Approximate quantity: 200 seeds.

  • Humans/Pets: Harmful if eaten
