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 classed as a semi-double, the outer petals being the largest and violet, the inner petals being numerous but reflexed back and a little twisted revealing the stamens. Fewer flowers are produced from these plants when they are young because they are semi-double but they do last considerably longer.
