    Slightly spreading stems bear three-lobed leaves, which are covered with soft hairs that feel silky to the touch. When they are gently bruised, they emit a smell that is reminiscent of lemons and roses. Throughout the summer and autumn, this foliage is topped with small sprays of mauve-pink flowers, each with a white eye, which further add to the appeal.

  • Garden care: As soon as you receive the plants you will need to pot them up into larger pots straight away. Water when necessary, but let the soil get reasonably dry in between to avoid overly wet conditions. If you want more flowers, then feed your plants once a week with a weak solution of a potash-rich liquid fertiliser, such as Tomorite. Deadheading the spent flowers will also encourage more to form.
