Dedicated breeding has helped create an exciting new flower shape, where many of the blooms are set as perfect stars due to gentle splits between the petals. These distinct flowers are magenta pink with a white centre. A splendid climber, ideal for trelliswork, fences, poles, etc.
Sow March to May. Soak seeds overnight in cold water before sowing. Germinate at 20-30C (68-86F) on the surface of a free draining, damp seed compost. Cover with a layer of compost, 6mm (0.25in) deep. Place in a propagator or seal container in a polythene bag until after germination which takes 10-21 days. Do not exclude light as this helps germination.
Transplant when large enough to handle into 13cm (5in) pots. Grow on in cooler, well lit conditions for 10-15 days before planting out after all risk of frost, 30cm (12in) apart. For pot plants, plant into loam-based soil in 20cm (8in) pots. Grow on with plenty of light, but shade from direct sun. Remove spent flowers regularly.
Prefers a sunny, sheltered, warm site.
