This apricot flowered diascia can be grown from seed and it is the first in its colour range to come true.  It has slender spikes of very pretty apricot pink flowers which cover the small bush in spring .  The flowers are produced from a plant which forms a small bunch of glossy, dark-green leaves. It is an excellent plant for rockeries, borders and containers where it  is spectacular with its repeat flowering to autumn.  It is an annual in cold areas but can also be a perennial in warmer northern areas.

Sowing advice for Diascia

Sow indoors in  spring about 6 weeks before the last frost. Sow onto moist seed raising mix, in trays or pots .. Do not cover as light is needed for germination. Water from the bottom of pots to avoid disturbing the seed. Keep moist but not waterlogged. Cover with a glass tray or clear film to keep the moisture in.. Germination takes 14-21 days at 15 – 18 deg C.
