We think this is the most striking combination of the series with its rose pink centre and green margins. The biggest and most dramatic of all with leaves up to 12in/30cm long. Fast growing and well branched, they make a superb display in beds and just spectacular when displayed in containers. Sow anytime for indoor pot plants. Treat as HHA.

Planting & Harvesting

Sow & Grow

GROWING INSTRUCTIONS: To grow as a summer foliage bedding plant: Sow indoors, February-April, in pots or trays of seed compost, just covering the seed. Maintain a temperature of 15-20°C (60-68°F) and keep compost moist. Thin (prick out) to further pots or trays when seedlings are large enough to handle, spacing 10cm (4”) apart. Harden off before planting out in June, allowing 45cm (18”) between plants. To grow as indoor plants: Sow at any time. Pot seedlings on individually as the plants develop, finally into a 12cm (5”) pot. Flowers: August to October, although it is best to remove flower buds as they appear, to encourage leaf development and bushy plants.
