All grown from seed and now 4 years old. These little beauties have scented flowers! Not to be confused with the florist varieties that are used as house plants. Planted out in a shady spot or under a tree they will self seed and spread over the years. Coming from around the Mediterranean they choose to flower in the autumn when the weather is cooler. The flowers come up before the leaves as can be seen in the pictures. Bone hard they will stand frost. The foliage is quite varied with patterned leaves giving good ground cover once a patch in quite large. If grown in pots water sparingly when the plant is dormant to prevent rotting. The plants you will receive are grown in 9cm pots, some of the pictures are of our mother plants.
