Recommended by Which? - 'A true giant. With a name like 'Giraffe' we expected these to be tall, but weren't prepared for just how tall! Initially they were level with the other giants, but then put on a spurt and climbed another metre to tower over their competitors. Each of the huge plants carried a single dinner-plate-sized flower that lasted for a few weeks but seemed a bit inconspicuous when they were so far away. Try them next year, and you'll impress the neighbourhood.'
Sow under glass March-April and outdoors April-June for flowers July-September.
