Border and pot plant ideal for very sunny or semi-shady areas. The leaves are multi-coloured in an array of different shades, which make it ideal for creating striking areas of colour. To prolong the life of the plant, simply remove the flowers as they wilt in the summer. Sow from February in a sheltered place or seed tray at a temperature of 20/25°C, covering the seed with a thin layer of compost. It is vulnerable to frost and should be planted out once there is no longer likelihood of frost.
