Which Diascia is this?
i bought it at a market labelled Diascia, but nothing else.
i thought they were annuals, but this one, in a barrel but unprotected has survived three winters sofar.
one of the winters we had a brief spel of -15C...?
Spritzhenry maybe you know?

On plant Diascia




It's not the usual complaint about photos on here, but this photo only shows a close-up of the flower, and doesn't show the plant's overall shape and habit.

There is a perennial Diascia - D. rigescens, but I can't see if this is it, or not.

I've found it to be a short lived perennial, but it does take from cuttings.h

Thanks Beattie, i am fairly sure this isnt a D.Rigescens.
it is not upright enough
i posted a few more photos just now, to show overall shape.
i will try to plant some in the ground next to see how it survives there, lovely groundcover!

I can't find the extra photos Resi. I've looked at your photos and also to see if you've posted them as a new question. You COULD edit this question and add 2 more here if you want to....

I've been away & come back - your new photo is now showing. Deffo NOT D. rigescens. I hope Spritz or someone else will know.

Perhaps it's this one? -
