Plant it near the front of a summer bedding display, or allow it to cascade over the edges of a window box or hanging basket where it will provide oodles of colour. The pea-like flowers are either red, or yellow with an orange tip, so they work really well in hot themed colour schemes. The needle-like, grey-green foliage is also attractive. Make sure it has the protection it needs in winter and it will keep coming back year after year.Garden care: Keep plants in a heated greenhouse (min 5C) and water sparingly in winter.
