Hiya tommysmith

Get the new guinea hybrids ..they are a disease resistant type of busy lizzy.

They need to go in the shade...they like it cool

I like to grow 3 of the same colour together so I would get one that's about 30 cm across for those. In a container I would not plant anything else with them

I would agree with Verdun. Make sure the ones you get are disease resistant. A couple of years ago all mine died overnight.

They look much nicer on their own. I wouldn't put anything else with them.
