PLEASE NOTE: Since plants are often sourced from the garden to order, sizes do vary a little, depending on how they come out of the ground, but I always endeavour to give a little more rather than less! They are sometimes shipped bare-rooted, but will approximate the size specified (e.g. a 9cm pot).

A dynamic plant that deserves to be better known! Red-orange flowers appear from June and continue flowering right through until early autumn, above beautiful bronze-green foliage. It has a bushy, dwarf habit, making it good plant for containers. If sown early, under cover, it should flower in the first year.
Sowing and/or growing instructions
Sow from January to April in a cold greenhouse or cold frame, 0.25in/0.5cm deep. Keep moist. Transplant seedlings and grow on, hardening off and planting out after all danger of frost is past. Can also be direct sown in May or June.
