This latest selection from the range has many small light violet to pink flowers.
It is the smallest of the SAPHYRA ® varieties.
A cloud of small starshaped flowers from June to September and a height of under 0.80m make Estrella an asset for any garden or grown in pots during the summer months.
Cutting back hard in early spring is necessary. To encourage a second flowering, pinch out from time to time.
The SAPHYRA ® range is perfectly suitable for landscaped areas and smaller gardens alike.
The plants are short and well ramified. Their growth is moderate and they can be used in low structured plantations (maximum height 1,50 m) or as ground cover, together with shrubs and perennial plants, for example.
They bloom profusely from May to September-October in full sun or partial shade.
These are strong and easy plants, with excellent resistance to disease and frost, and suitale to be cut back mechanically (cut back to 20 cm from the ground, the new stems will grow naturally).
