They are such a vibrant colour as well as being slightly more unusual to most of the plants we grow for their flowers.

I also have dark red & salmon pink ones as well.

We used to grow them many years ago, not sure why we stopped.....I think they became unfashionable possibly!! and we liked to try new plants etc...
