£35.97 £23.98
  • 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: April to December
  • Hardiness: tender (will need to be over-wintered indoors, or in a shaded greenhouse)

    Often flowering well into winter, the upper lobes of this bi-coloured cultivar are a rich purple, while the lobes on the lower lip are creamy yellow.

  • Home care: Water regularly during the growing season, allowing the compost to get a little dry in-between, during this time they should be fed with a high potash fertiliser. Overwinter in a shaded greenhouse, or indoors on an south or west-facing windowsill, watering less often. Repot each spring into a slightly larger, shallow pot filled with fibre based compost.
