Description

Silver foliage and clusters of pale pink fragrant flowers.

This grandiflorum specimen is grand by nature with its masses of pink flowers held on sturdy stems. With succulent silver foliage bringing interest year round for the Rock garden, crevice garden and containers. Once flowering has occurred you are left with the glorious seed heads that last for many months and are a delight to harvest when we collect the seed and split the pods. We recommend placing in a free draining area of your garden so as to not get the root system damaged through winter.

    All went as promised: notification that the plants were now available; prompt delivery; good plants; a question about them quickly answered. The only thin I could wish different is the use of small pieces of whitish stuff in the packing. They used to be polystyrene, but I assume these a more environmentally friendly. However they are as infuriating to deal with.

    Hi Devra
    Thank you for taking the time to review your order. We also find these frustrating and so have been working hard in the background to design a box that will transport plants with zero plastic other than the plant pots and label (we are working on this too) The good news is we have just ordered 5000 of our designed boxes and expect to have a few teething issues when used on mass and not just in trials. But hopefully this will change the industry for the better.
    All the best
    Luke & Laura
