Flamenco Samba

flamenco samba

The Flamenco Samba is a lovely compact shrub of around 40 x 60cm and flowers prolifically, bearing cherry red blooms with dark centres and deep purple throats. It loves a sunny position, but is tender to frost. It grows in a mounding fashion and is ideal for containers, hanging baskets and garden borders. A good cut back after flowering will keep its shape and promote new growth.
