Flowering Season

From Late Summer TO Late Autumn

The flowers up to 20cm (8ins) across, opening from fat, rounded buds in late summer and autumn.

 

Planting

From Late Autumn TO Late Winter

Plant out in any well drained, fertile soil from late autumn in a sheltered border in full sun. As these shrubs are late-flowering, it is advisable to give them wall protection in northern gardens.

 

Propagation by cuttings

From Early Summer TO Late Summer

Take heel cuttings, 3-4 inches long from half-ripe lateral shoots preferably with a heel at any time between early and late summer. Insert into equal parts of sand and peat in a propagating case at a temperature of 16C. When rooted, pot the cuttings singly in 3 inch pots of John Innes No 1 and overwinter in a cold frame. The following spring, pot on into 4 inch pots and plunge outdoors until planting out in autumn.

 

Planting
