This plant produces a vigorous rosette of deep green, slightly toothed leaves. Erect stems protrude from the rosette which bear Japanese lantern shaped buds. The buds burst open during summer, the soft pink flowers have many thin, twisting petals with red dots, much like the many legs of an octopus, hence it's rather apt name 'Pink Octopus'.
It is suitable for flower beds and borders in either sun or partial shade, growing quite happily in any good soil.
