  • Position: partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil or fibre-based compost if grown indoors
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: April to October
  • Hardiness: tender (will need to be over-wintered indoors, or in a shaded greenhouse)

    This gorgeous streptocarpus was voted RHS Chelsea Flower Show Plant of the Year in 2010 and rightly so! It produces its flat-faced primrose yellow and baby blue flowers in abundance, and its short stems helps it maintain a relatively neat and compact habit. It comes supplied in a white glazed ceramic pot, which offers an immediate and attractive way to display it in your home.

  • Garden care: Water regularly during the growing season, allowing the compost to get a little dry in-between, during this time they should be fed with a high potash fertiliser. Overwinter in a shaded greenhouse, or indoors on an south or west-facing windowsill, watering less often. Repot each spring into a slightly larger, shallow pot filled with fibre based compost.
