Chains of soft pink, fringed lockets. Long blooming spring & summer. Good cut flowers. Pretty grey-green lacy foliage. Water-wise. Enjoys Shade to ½ Shade. Groundcover under trees & shrubs. Tolerates summer humidity. Frost & dry hardy, evergreen perennial. 30cm H x 60cm W.

SEED SOWING ADVICE: Warm – cold – cool.

Sow in winter / early spring in punnets.

Soak seed in fresh water for 12-24 hours. Rinse, then sow in punnets on surface of good quality seed raising mix. Press gently and barely cover with mix or fine sandy grit. Light is needed for germination. Keep moist indoors at approx. 18-22C for 2-4 weeks. Then wrap punnet in cling-wrap and place in fridge (not freezer) for 4-6 weeks. Unwrap and return to cool place, outdoors if necessary, as approx. 13C is best for rapid germination. Then most seedlings should emerge in approx. 30 days. But do not discard as some seeds will continue to sprout.
