S. ‘Hannah' and S. ‘Hope' will be introduced at this year's RHS Chelsea Flower Show and for every S. ‘Hope' that is purchased 5p will be given to Hope House Children's Hospice.
The variety S. ‘Hope' bears flowers that are a rich velvety red/purple with two strong yellow flashes at the throat. The flowers of S. ‘Hannah' are pale pink when they first open, but darken to a mid-pink after a couple of days.
Dibleys has also increased its production of Achimenes or hot water plants and African violets this year. Propagator Angelika Dibley has taken on the African violet propagation and she will be overseeing the release of more new varieties through the Dibleys website each month.
