Description

New for 2020

As yet this new variety, raised by our very own Alan Burnett, is unclassified though we suggest it would be a Small Semi-Cactus but under cover probably refined enough to be a Small Cactus. Fully double lavender pink flowers with a white base are held on good stems. The strong growing plants will reach about 1.5 m and will easily take 8 blooms per plant. The blooms themselves are very weatherproof and will provide a good show for cutting or the garden and for those growing without covers it could be an option for the show bench. Strong growing plants should have their growing tips removed when the plants have 4-5 pairs of leaves and then allow 8-10 flowering stems to develop. For garden show it would be advisable to remove the first pair of buds below the main terminal flowering bud on each stem but for longer stems for cutting and showing we would suggest 2-3 pairs are removed. Regular removal of dead flowers will help encourage a second flush of blooms. Ensure plants are kept well supported by caning and tying on throughout the season.
