The small, lilac, hump backed flowers, which look rather like a sweet from a bag of 'Licorice Allsorts', are carried in profusion on slender, well-branched stems. At the base sits a flat rosette of long, oval mid-green leaves. A plant that creates a lovely see-through effect.

Care advice

Easy to grow. Liable to seed around but as this is quite a delicate, see-through plant this does not cause any problems.
