Another gorgeous color has joined All-America Selection winner Coral Rose in the Diamonte® family of seed-grown Diascia! Lavender Pink is a rich, deep shade of rose, utterly beautiful and unusual. It arises on the same dense, well-branched, "no pinch" plants that made its sister Coral Rose so famous. Give this cool-season annual a whirl in garden and container this season -- you will find it marvelously easy and really distinctive!

Until recently, few Americans outside the West Coast grew Diascia, but now it's becoming widely popular across the country. Known as Twinspur, it's a European favorite with plentiful blooms throughout spring and again in fall. The plant is mounded and compact, with excellent branching. In fact, this is where seed-grown Diascia outdoes its cutting-grown cousins: Diamonte® is actually better branched and more dense than others, and you don't have to pinch the growing tips to get such full, heavy-blooming plants!

Lavender Pink is a glorious color, its 1-inch blooms wide open and flat for maximum showiness. Let it spill from containers and billow in the annual bed, reaching about 12 to 14 inches high and wide. Best in partial shade but also happy in full sun in northern and cooler climates, it flowers freely and always looks its best. One of the first annuals to bloom in spring, it gets the garden display off to an unforgettable start!

And it's easy to grow from seed. Cover the seed lightly; this multi-seed pellet will sprout in less than a week. Within 3 months you'll have a blooming plant -- with no pinching required! Give it good potting soil or a well-drained garden spot, and it will ask little more than food and water to keep blooming throughout the two cool seasons! Pkt is 25 seeds.
