Product Details
This really is an outstanding hybrid Bred by Dr Keith Lever. Foliage is deep green on shortish trailing stems radiating from a central point when young. They produce many offsets and root from trailing stems which is a good means of propagation by simply lifting and replanting as they form. The flowers are trumpet shaped with a wide open mouth, colour is rich purple turning white at the base of the throat. We would recommend a position in full sun with plenty of moisture and acid soil for these plants to thrive.
