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).

This variety of cinquefoil produces rich, dark-red flowers from late spring and right through to the first frosts. Will usually gently self-seed.
Sowing and/or growing instructions
Sow in a cold frame in autumn or in an unheated greenhouse in spring. thinly on the surface of good quality, moist compost, covering with a bare sprinkling of compost or fine vermiculite. Provide a temperature of about 20C/68F. Germination is usually 7-14 days, but can be a little longer. Spring-sown seeds may benefit from a couple of weeks in the fridge to aid germination. Grow plants on in individual pots, planting out when large enough.
