These unusual dark purple ‘bat faced’ flowers will keep all batman fans happy as they bloom in abundance. A multi-stemmed plant that loves to grow amongst other plants of a similar height (60-80 cm), weaving its way through for support but not overwhelming its neighbours with the unusual flowers peep through like a good garden fairy. A long flowering half-hardy annual that blooms in summer and early autumn.  100 seeds.
