Fiery , star-shaped scarlet flowers open amongst most attractive foliage which is divided into fine slender threads giving a ferny appearance. Vigorous and fast-growing, it flowers all summer long, right into autumn, and is a perfect food plant for butterflies and other pollinating insects. Give it room to grow and watch it head for the sky!
Sow seeds, covering them thinly, preferably in spring but can be at any time, in good light, at between 15 and 20 degrees C. Prick out small seedlings into 3 inch/8cm pots containing a John Innes, loam-based compost. Grow on before planting into a large container or sheltered spot outdoors, with climbing support, and be sure to protect them from freezing in winter.
