A low-growing succulent that has small plump grey-green leaves with an abundance of vibrant daisy-like flowers in the most eye-catching bright pink iridescent magenta shade with a pin-cushion yellow central eye. Lampranthus ‘Tresco Brilliant’ is mound forming, half hardy, neat and low maintenance plant and grows best in a sunny position so ideal for a rockery or container with free-draining compost or soil.
In warmer areas of South West England and Tresco, on The Isles of Scilly, where the name is taken from, the plant can be in flower for most of the year, but generally is a perennial that needs some frost protection in exposed areas.

Pot Ready, Large, Healthy plants individually rooted in large plugs of compost. Ideal for planting into baskets, containers or small areas in the garden. Best results achieved if grown on for a short while in 9cm/10cm pots prior to planting out if planting straight into garden borders. Tender varieties will need protecting from frost. Compost volume around 4-5cm deep x 3-4cm square. Foliage height 5cm-12cm (depending on variety). Full growing instructions are provided.
In a mild winter you may find that the plants do not die back entirely, but usually the growth will die back until the following spring and then regrow. It may be a good idea to label the plants so that you know where and what they are!
Give the plug plants a good soak when they arrive, then pot them up and grow on (as per instructions for perennials) before transferring them into the garden. Dead heading regularly will stop the flowers producing seeds and prolong the overall flowering season.
I gave 5 stars for the excellent service I received from Brookside Nursery. Also the quality and packaging of the plants was first class
Plants arrived on time and in great condition, the packaging system is extremely good. Highly recommended.
