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 and bees to feed and flowers can be covered on warm summer days.

Vivid violet is bright violet-pink. Lovely colour.

They flower in summer through autumn and, in a good season, early winter. Flowers are on stems up to 50-60 cm tall and are good picking.

They need sunny, 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 plant about 10-15 cm high, potted in an 9 cm pot. Plants come with full colour label and growing information.

Photos show flowers on mature plant, sample potted plant and the colour label.
