Long flowering

Loved by bees, this plant flowers and flowers from late spring until well into the summer months. Nodding, soft orange blooms are excellent for picking and last well in a vase.

Where?

Happiest at the front of a sunny border where this plant will flower for months.

How?

Best in well drained soil. Water occasionally until your plant is established and remove faded blooms to encourage more. Cut back old leaves in late spring to tidy the plant.

Planting instructions

Water the plant in its pot thoroughly before planting – give it a good soaking. Prepare the area by digging a hole twice the size of the pot. Dig compost into the base of the hole. Remove the pot and position the plant in the hole, with the top of the rootball about level with the surrounding soil. Refill the planting hole with a mixture of garden soil and compost, firming as you go. Water in well and keep well watered during the plant's first year.
