Each stem is strongly upright, and requires no staking, and the blooms are a deep violet that remains vibrant even when temperatures rise. Other than occasional deadheading, no additional maintenance chores are required.

Noteworthy CharacteristicsStrong, upright form. Deep violet flowers. Tolerant of heat and humidity.

CareProvide full sun and humusy, very well-drained soil. Plants may be overwintered indoors in a warm, bright area or in a cold frame or unheated garage.
