Listing Detail Tabs

Butterfly flower, pincushion flower or lace flower are other names for these delicate flowers with a frill of petals arranged neatly around the central “pincushion”. The flowers attract butterflies to feed.

Flowers on this variety are bright crimson. They flower in summer through autumn and, in a good season, early winter. Flowers are on stems up to 30 cm tall and are good picking.

They need full sun to part shade and well drained sites for best growth. They are perennial and die down over winter. In temperate places, they usually keep some leaves over winter.

You are bidding on a minimum 40 seeds. Growing instructions included. Germinate the seeds in spring and summer and in early autumn in warmer sites.

I am willing to combine with other seed purchases for delivery. I recommend delivery by courier and can send any number of packets of seeds at the advertised shipping cost. Otherwise, you can choose delivery by NZ Post at your risk and up to 4 packets of seeds can fit in one envelope. I will not replace seeds lost in post. I do not sent seeds with consignments of live plants.
