Each attractive trumpet shaped bloom has its own distinct yellow and red marbled markings, which magically appear orange when viewed from a distance. Flowers open in the evening and early morning, adding vibrant colours and their delightful fragrance to your borders.

For best results, provide a rich, light, well-drained soil in full sun.

Caution: harmful if eaten

Sow seeds from February to April. Sow seeds on the surface of lightly firmed, moist seed compost in pots or trays and cover with a fine sprinkling of vermiculite. Place in a propagator or warm place, and keep at a constant temperature of between 20-25C (68-77F). After sowing, do not exclude light as this helps germination. Keep the surface of the compost moist but not waterlogged; germination will usually take 7-21 days.

When large enough to handle, transplant seedlings into 7.5cm (3in) pots or trays. Gradually acclimatise plants to cooler conditions for a few weeks before planting out after all risk of frost, 30cm (12in) apart.

Striking and easy to grow 2011-01-29

These are really lovely early morning & afternoon-opening flowers. Very easy to grow & attractive both at a distance & close-up. They flower profusely until autumn frosts.
