Product Details

Easy to grow in a moist but well drained soil with a little shade, particularly in summer as the sun will scorch the leaves. The foliage is the typical three lobed affair and held on wiry petioles all originating from a central point. The flowers are the obvious attraction and these plants have a secure following in the plant world with more and more new hybrids coming along every day. This particular hybrid is a semi double, the outer petals being the largest and the inner petals being numerous and loosely packed but open enough to give a flattened flower. The petals become paler towards the centre of the flower and also whiter to the centre of each petal. Fewer flowers are produced from these plants when they are young because they are semi-double but they do last considerably longer.

 This plant was listed here as Hohobeni but we have found that after the first year with us we could not get it to produce the full double flowers, it's still a very attractive flower in this state. Strong pink with petalloid stamens/smaller inner petals.
