Accentuate your garden with masses of sumptuous purple blooms
This compact, mound-forming perennial makes a great addition to any garden, and adds blocks of colour you would normally witness in a formal garden planting scheme! Forming a carpet of deep purple, this variety will effortlessly establish a backdrop of rich colour in rockeries or gravel gardens.

Plant in containers on your patio for a beautiful display.
Lovingly grown by our trusted nursery in England, each bedding plant will be grown in perfect conditions to allow them to develop beautiful flowers and foliage. Once ready, they will be dispatched directly to your door.
Sustainability is one of our priorities, and as such, your bedding plants will be delivered in environmentally friendly packaging. Aside from being recyclable, they will keep your plants safe and secure on their journey to your home.
- Watering: Before planting your bedding plants, it is important to provide them with a generous watering. This can be done by letting the roots of each plant submerge in a bucket of water. Once all air bubbles have escaped, allow each plant to drain. If you are planting your bedding plants in a hanging basket, you will need to water them more frequently (ideally once a day).
- Deadheading: To promote a long flowering period, you should deadhead any flowers that appear spent. Simply rescind each flower at their base, taking care to not cut other parts of the plant.
- Feed: To really flourish, your bedding plants should have adequate feed. You can either add a slow release fertilizer to their compost, or mix feed into their watering on a weekly basis.
Your plant will need to be protected from any danger of frost. Keep them in a sheltered environment until they are ready to go outside, usually around May time. A greenhouse is perfect, but a windowsill or conservatory will suffie as long as they are kept warm (16-18°C is optimal), and receive plenty of sunlight.
Use a good quality balanced potting compost when planting. Slow release fertiliser is advised for best results.
