  • Vigorous

A very vigorous variety with large, elongated flowers. An Atkinsii cultivar. Some flowers may have an extra petal or two, some may look rather distorted as if the weather has wrecked them but this is a cultivar aberration and completely normal.

Prefers a moisture retentive but well-drained soil in sun or partial shade. Dormant by summer. Will quickly bulk up to form substantial clumps.

Height: 4 - 8 inches / 10 - 20cm

Spread: 6 - 8 inches / 15 - 20cm
