This is a non-fading or much reduced fading type of Daucus carota.   It has burgundy-red flowers throughout the bloom season, and is a much sought after variety as a specialty cutflower and is also a pretty filler in the garden. It has nicely aromatic , ferny carrot foliage, and bees and butterflies love it.

Sow in spring, and autumn in warmer areas. Sow directly where they are to grow or in pots or trays
