Reveling in scorching dry heat this gourmet delight will start to produce the flower buds (which can be pickled or dry salted) in their second year. Produces up to 8 kilos of buds when mature. 1 yr old plants.
Not only are the flowers constructed from intensely magenta-purple velvet the foliage is crinkled sage-grey on one side and cotton wool on the other. A garden winner with both flower and foliage this tough salvia displays for months.
Generous and exuberant, the evening primroses are in flower all summer. With soft pink flowers in such profusion that they provide months of colour as a border or groundcover. Perfect for your Diggers garden.
