Hi, I had these in the garden last year and were beautiful, i was hoping they would come back but think they have perished, any idea what they are please, very vivid purples and pinks
what time of year and did you get any photos of the leaves
In the sticks near Peterborough
they were in full flower in the summer, died back a bit late summer, leaves were long and thin if that helps
Looks like a Senetti
Search for Senetti Blue Bicolour. It should be that.
It's only an annual but they do flower for a long period if deadheaded regularly
They tend to arrive in Garden Centres Mid-March down here
I had some of these in a south facing porch in our old house and they flowered right through a mild winter one year!!
Fairly certain it is a Senetti. They are Spring and early summer flowering, and not fully hardy.
for the fag ends of the aristocracy.
Brilliant, thanks all!!
I did overwinter one of these once, in a cool greenhouse, but truth to tell it was not really worth the effort. It never flowered well again, and really I could have given the space to something else - but you have to try these things once in a while.
