The giant double ruffled flowers resemble carnations and are produced on these super vigorous plants in a glorious mix of purple, pink and white on tall, strong stems.
A real showstopper that is easy to grow, producing a pillar of colour continuously from July until October, making a spectacular feature on any patio when grown up a support.
It can also be grown directly in the border where it will smother the weeds if left to trail or it can be trained up a frame to create a tower of colour.
You can cut the long stems for displaying in a vase, where they’ll last for up to two weeks.
For the best display only occasional maintenance is required, just pinching young plants twice will encourage base branching and a better plant habit which will reward you with more flowers.
Due to it being a sterile male sterile it does not produce seed, so it is not necessary to deadhead - so no sticky fingers.
Supplied as 12 plug plants, ready to grow on and plant out after the risk of frost has passed.

Unpack plugs immediately, and stand them in water for an hour.
Plugs may be slightly dry or yellow after being in a dark box in the post but they’ll quickly recover. Put them somewhere warm, light and airy such as a windowsill or greenhouse.
When potting on, handle plugs carefully. Pot on before planting out when there is no longer a danger of frost.
Give your plants a good water initially, then only when the top compost starts to dry. They don’t like to be left in standing water.
Plant approx. 20cm (8”) apart to allow them room to grow. Feed using a high-potash feed to encourage flowering.
Pinch out young plants twice to encourage branching and more flowers.
Deadheading is not necessary as this sterile male plant does not produce seed.
