Pot Size: 1.5 litre
Description: From a small species to about 1.2m tall in cultivation, with tiny toothed leaves on upright twiggy stems bearing a continuation of large (for the species) flared bright pink tubular hermaphrodite flowers continuously for us even in the garden after -7C. A distinct selected seedling from a batch originating from one of our collections gathered at high altitude, almost at the summit of Volcán Zunil Quetzaltenango in Guatemala at 3250m altitude in 2001. Can be cut back to the base, in severe cold, so protect the roots. Easily grown in sun or part shade in any type of fertile drained soil. Named after the vernacular name for this plant, Dolly Mixtures and for the dress shape of the flowers.
