Shizanthus 'Dr Badger' is one of my first annuals to flower this year. It has delicate pink, purple and white flowers with a specked yellow centre. Seeds were quick to germinate in late March and plants should flower for 3 months. They have a vase life of about 7 days. I picked my first little posy of the year last night, with the very first cosmos stem, shizanthus, marigolds, cow parsley and mizuna flowers.
