Cerise-pink pincushion flowers contrast beautifully with offsetting variegated leaves with green centres and white borders. Bees and butterflies are particularly drawn to this variety, beneficial to you the home-grower as they stick around pollinating blossoms too of tree fruit and strawberries.

Place this variety in a container or at the front of a flower bed that enjoys a degree of shade. The variegated leaves don’t favour intense sunlight so appreciate a degree of shade to truly thrive. A great flower for a rock garden or alpine garden that enjoys shade at some point of the day.
