Plant details

Goldilocks' has long stems, supporting long lasting blooms that are ideal for cutting, as well as making a bright addition to beds and borders. The flowers are double and a rich yellow-orange, with black centres. It keeps producing new blooms, overlapping, so that they cover the ones that are fading. It's an outstanding garden plant for a sunny spot, flowering from mid-summer to the first frost. Grow 'Goldilocks' as a half-hardy annual, sowing seed indoors in spring, and planting out plants in late spring, or early summer.
