Sumptuous, deep mahogany coloured flowers bob in the wind well above the compact foliage. A unique colour that is sought after by gardening connoisseurs and versatile enough to blend into many varied colour schemes for a designer touch.

Great for a sunny border where a blending with hot colours will give dramatic results. They make excellent container specimens where they can also be brought closer to doorways and paths to experience the sweet scent that becomes more pronounced towards the end of a warm day.
