Francoa sonchifolia Pink Bouquet


So popular with florists, it has become known as Bridal Wreath.
Handsome, rosettes of shiny semi-evergreen foliage cradle many spires from July to September, each holding a plethora of small pink flowers with a red blotch at the base. Long graceful stems make them good for cutting and they last well in a vase. 
During the summer the heads get even larger, really showing off her full beauty. Prefers moist, well-drained soil in sun or part shade. Height 80cm (32”). Spread 30cm (12”). Fully hardy perennial. Supplied in 9cm pots.

"Thank you ladies for your beautiful plants.
Praise also, for the Bulrush Compost, of which I have purchased 8 bags during the past six months. It is superb and my garden has flourished.
Bless you,
Kind wishes"
