  • Striking, non-stop flowers keep plants covered in huge colour from Spring through Autumn…even in heat and drought.
  • Sturdy flower stems hold flowers above the foliage for superior show versus others.
  • Shows well at retail and perfect for landscapes, baskets, big tubs and borders.

Offers better variety purity, eliminating green-leaf off-types, with deeper bronze foliage colour and improved plant habit with shorter internodes and great basal branching. Earlier to flower, how much earlier depends on daylength conditions.
