  • 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: usually from spring to autumn
  • Hardiness: tender (will need to be overwintered indoors, or in a shaded greenhouse)

    Relatively compact mounds of mid-green foliage are topped with a mass of flowers for the majority of the year. Initially blush pink with a yellow eye that is pencilled with short maroon lines, the flowers darken within a few days of opening to mid-pink.

  • Home care: Water regularly during the growing season, allowing the compost to get a little dry in between; during this time they should also be fed with a high potash fertiliser. Overwinter in a shaded greenhouse, or indoors on a south or west-facing windowsill, watering less often. Repot each spring into a slightly larger, shallow pot filled with fibre-based compost. They can also be used as summer bedding - grow in fertile, humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil in partial shade.
