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 year. This particular hybrid is a semi double, the outer petals being the largest and rich deep purple. The inner petals being numerous but reflexed back sharply. Fewer flowers are produced from these plants when they are young because they are semi-double but they do last considerably longer. Doesn't always produce the aberrant petals in the centre for some reason.
