Description How to Grow More Info Delivery

Tiny, royal purple flowers are clustered into large, dense heads that make a bold colour statement from a distance. Get closer, and there's a further reward. Also known as ‘Cherry Pie’, Heliotrope marine has a delicious, sweet scent. Plant it in containers on the patio, where you can enjoy its perfume close at hand. Or use it as bedding at the front of borders and watch butterflies and bees flock to its fragrant, nectar-rich flowers. This compact variety forms low mounds of deep green' crinkled leaves, tinged with purple, that are smothered in flowers from July to October. Combine it with orange bedding plants for an exciting colour contrast. Height and spread: 45cm (18in).

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

1 x 19cm potted plant (Standard) (KF6072)

Plant outdoors on fertile, moist, well drained soil in a full sun.
Feed and water regularly until heliotrope plants are fully established. Deadhead faded heliotrope flowers frequently throughout summer to encourage more blooms to be produced. Heliotrope is a half-hardy shrub and container-grown plants can be overwintered in a warm frost free greenhouse. Caution: Contact with foliage may irritate the skin and eyes. Heliotrope is harmful if eaten.
