Tell Me More...
Not just for the collectors, you too will love this unusual, bi-coloured cutie. Sumptuous purple-wine petals and yellow corolla create bonnet-shaped blooms that nod in the breeze above layered petticoats of lacy grey green foliage throughout spring and summer. Despite their delicate appearance they are tough little chaps and very easy to grow. Attractive to butterflies and bees. Rabbit and slug resistant. Unfussy on soil conditions in sun or partial shade. Fully hardy perennial.
