Gomphrena Globosa Ribena Ruffles
Gomphrena globosa is native to Central America including regions Panama, and Guatemala, but is now grown globally as a tropical annual plant blooming continuously throughout summer. G globosa "Ribena Ruffles" will produce masses of large purple globe shaped frilly flower heads upon a spreading bushy annual habit, so give it some space to expand! Even better this plant is very tolerant to heat and fairly drought resistant although it will appreciate regular moisture in the height of summer.
For best results, seeds are sown directly into the ground where required in the spring. Alternatively, sow in late winter/early spring in gentle warmth, 15-20 degrees C. Prick out into small 3 inch or 7 cm. pots and plant in final position when the plants are established.
