- Detailed Specification
Blooms almost the size of footballs - real whoppers and guaranteed to brighten up the garden and horticultural conversation. They are produced on strong stems so make fabulous cut flowers for a vase.
The blooms start lavender pink and fade to pale creamy white nearer the stem.
These huge blooms are often seen on the showbench in your local village hall but will certainly turn heads if used in garden borders and containers where they will continue to flower through to the first frosts. Tubers can be lifted, dried off, stored and re-planted in spring to flower again year after year.
