Comparable in colour with E. 'Sweet Sorbet' with its flowers in purple, yellow, pink and copper tones. This variety however, is earlier to flower, more compact and with larger flowers.
Prefers full sun, or partial shade with free-draining soil. Doubtful hardy It is possible that it will survive normal winter conditions outside, if it is protected from the worst frosts.
