Description

These deep red , shiny papery flowers are extremely easy to cultivate.
They are tall, and with their strong stems and dark foliage they make extremely good cut and dried flowers. They last a very long time and keep their colour for a long time when dried.

Sowing advice

Sow indoors in spring in trays or pots. Surface sow onto moist well-drained seed compost. Cover with a sprinkling of soil only as light is needed for germination. Keep at 22-24°C. Germination takes 7-15 days. Once seedlings are large enough to handle transplant to 8cm pots and grow on in cooler conditions. Acclimatise and plant out once danger of frost has passed with 30cm spacing.
