Dr. Seuss fans will know the Truffula tree from one of Kernock's favourite Seuss stories – ‘The Lorax’. The flowers of Gomphrena 'Truffula Pink' look remarkably like those trees in his madcap story.

This multi-award-winning variety in the USA creates mounds of green foliage covered in more flowers than you can count across it’s strong, compact and spreading habit.

It is another summer sizzler, favouring the temperatures of mid-summer, but develops very well in the cooler periods of May and June. Great for containers, baskets, raised beds and borders, the bright pink flowers are sure to make a stunning display.

Introduced by Kernock Park Plants.
