Absolutely gorgeous orange flowers up to 2″ across so quite stunning. For continuous flowering we suggest planting at least 5 tubers in a 13cm pot in good potting compost. Keep them moist in a light warm area, but not in direct sunlight. Best suited for growing indoors although in a very sheltered spot they could be grown outdoors but not recommended with the UK weather patterns.
Plant tubers 1.5cms deep and 2.5cms apart in a well drained soil. Keep pots indoors in a warm bright spot.
Achimenes are best grown indoors and watered with tepid water.
Aspect: Indoors in a warm, light position.
Soil type: Plant in a indoor bulb fibre and keep indoors for flowering June/July
