Lets talk about them
Such a delicate charming textural flower. Like all perennials it's not a showstopper - but it certainly adds that magic touch.
I adore the little pink flowers like a pink gypsophila, but for me it’s when the flowers fade and the deep coppery red little berries form, that Jewels of Opar really shines
How to make these beauties grow
Sow: *Autumn for overwintering or mid spring 6-8 weeks before the last frost.
How: Surface sow and cover lightly - light required for germination. *If overwintering grow on in a cold frame or greenhouse if you experience anything more then a light frost then I do in the south island.
Where: Full sun
Days to Maturity: 90-100 days
Pick: When the red berries are fully formed and the stems have matured to a darker red colour.
Notes From The Garden
Tender perennial - so basically protect from hard frosts.
Can be treated as annual and re-sown each spring.
Happily self seeds so dead head reguarly if you do not want plants popping up everywhere - just like feverfew.
