This is older hybrid but I love it. Very easy to grow and It is always blooming with strong lovely fragrance.

DS-L'EPATAGE D’ALCHIMIE

The large luminous ring in the flower’s throat changes color with time from violet to crimson.
Rosette is large. Leaves are firm and wide.

This variety has the strongest potential for flowering. This hybrid could have a bouquet-like “hat” of flowers for a year.
Growing Conditions
Since this hybrid has wide leaves only one rosette should be left on the bush. All additional rosettes will only hinder adjacent leaves.
It should be noted that removing extra rosettes forms a wound surface, on which new rosettes tend to grow. Therefore, periodically inspect the bush and remove all small leaves growing on the wounds.
The optimal size of the pot for a three-year plant is 18 cm (7”), the maximum is 20 cm (7.75”).
