Summary

Seren is Welsh for Star, which is a befitting name for this sturdy eye catching new introduction. Flowering from May - November the flowers are dark pink-violet whilst alternate petals are prominently and consistently splashed with white at the lower margins. You can expect 12-19 flowered umbels held on strong 66 cm stems. Good for flower arranging, wonderful on the patio, and we have even tried it against the house wall which only gets full sun until early afternoon. It thrived. Iím pleased with this.
