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 fully double, the outer petals being the largest and the inner petals being numerous and densely packed. The outer petals are purplish-blue, going through a colour change from this through pink to white at the centre, basically a tricoloured flower. Fewer flowers are produced from these plants when they are young because they are double but they do last considerably longer. Multiple noses on larger plants will make a show stopping plant.
