Originally hailing from Australia, Didiscus caerulea, also known as Trachymene coerulea and commonly known as the Blue Lace Flower is known so for its delicate lacy umbel shaped flower heads which are made up of tiny sweetly scented blue flowers that are about cm in diameter. Like many annuals, the more that you cut these flowers the more you will get and it is a reliable producer hence it has become a favourite of flower farmers as it lasts around 7-10 days in a vase.
Grown by many flower farmers, this is perfect for the cutting garden as well as making a lovely summer flowering plant for your borders. Well suited to a country cottage garden the flowers are not unlike the lovely Queen Annes Lace which we also sell.
Plants resent root disturbance so we recommend literally digging your hole where you want to plant her and then literally cut the bag and pop her into the hole gently firming the soil around her and then water in with something like Seasol which helps with transplant shock. Plant out after risk of frost has passed.
Plant in full sun in moist but well drained soil.
Height 70cm x 25cm
