Orlaya grandiflora is one of the most beautiful hardy annuals that you can grow, its also one of the easiest. Seed is often in short supply because its so popular, its used in abundance at the Chelsea Flower Show. We have done the hard work for you and grown some lovely plants. You might need to only buy one plant, save the seeds and sow immediately in September and you will have your own beautiful plants by May the following year. Orlaya looks beautiful planted en masse in a natural way a la the mediterranean olive grove OR in a more realistic setting, planted amongst other herbaceous perennials in the border or even in a pot. The Lace flower is also a wonderful plant for cutting. Very pretty, very long flowering and a great pollinator!
Plant in a sunny, well drained spot. Height 60cm, Spread 60cm.
