Clusters of intense (some say "screaming"!) pink star-shaped flowers, shown above dense glossy green foliage, maintain a good display if faded flowers are removed regularly, and it is particularly good for cutting if you like to display flowers indoors. A really cheerful addition to your garden, either in borders or containers, it will be happiest in a sunny position from where it is likely to seed itself around.
Sow immediately at any time onto preferably a soil-based compost, covering with fine grit to approximately their own depth. Germination MAY be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. but many seeds WILL NOT come up the year they are sown, needing winter chilling after sowing, and ONLY come up with natural spring germination.
