Why we love it:Specification Delivery & Returns
We first introduced Chocolate Candy to the gardening public 7 years ago, and what an introduction it's proved to be. Dainty pink flowers are held over neat compact rich chocolate foliage . Flowering from mid-Spring, we've occassionally had this top performer showing flower through the winter! Its neat compact habit makes it an ideal front of border plant or perfect for patio pots. Would look stunning contrasting against steel planters. Chocolate Candy is a full hardy variety, ideal in sun & tolerates shade but will require free draining soil. Discovered as a chance seedling on Coen Jansens' Dalfsen Nursery in Northern Holland, it was trialled, garden tested & introduced to the UK market by Richard Webb where it has become established as one of our customers' favourite plants.
