Indian blanket is a secret that you should know about. The low-growing, strong plants produce flowers from the end of July deep into autumn. They blanket the ground with a wealth of idiosyncratic flowers that dot the landscape with their basket shape. They paint warm, orange-brown tones that vary to yellow and purple. We received our first seeds from a gardener at the al-Azhar Park in Cairo and have loved them ever since. Shows the true beauty of network gardening in action! Height reaches up to 60 cm.
