If you want to create a dramatic in your garden. Look no further. The 5" flowers carry a wide dark purple/black eyezone, surrounded by a pale pinkish-purple, and is pure theatre. In hot summers this dark eyezone colour extends to display picotee edging. So if you can plant Awesome Blossom in a sheltered sun-trap all the better. But make no mistake it will perfom well anywhere, even here in the Welsh hills. An early to mid-season re-bloomer.
Some sorces quote this variety flowering to a height of 24", however we have found that at best it is 18". So we would advise that care is taken not to plant too deep into the border, to reduce the risk of it being smothered by taller plants.
