An old acquaintance which does also in our climate well and is for this reason still very popular.
It has been already a couple of years ago since this beautiful hybrid came on the market and by a number of positive properties is still very wanted. Beautiful clear and large flowers of 10 cm (4 inch) and also reasonable frost resistant. Although it is advisable to protect the root system against frost in the winter with some organic material. Is is a pitty that the plant carries a latent virus which especially shows itself in the resting period (little grow and flurishing). As it starts growing again, the leaves will become greener and will look healthier. So please don't think it's a lack of feeding. Minimum temperature: -8° C (18° F).
