Derived from Alan Bloom's breeding programme, ‘Keepsake’ was never originally named.
When Staddon Farm Nurseries were awarded National Collection status, Alan Bloom donated a clump and with his permission, it has been named and is now available for sale for the first time.
A full 90% of profits will be donated to Special Olympics Plymouth District, a charity that enables people with learning disabilities to take part in sport.
An exceptionally easy plant to grow with phenomenal flowers, it is best grown as an edge of woodland planting.
It is being launched at RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2017 and entered into the RHS Chelsea Plant of the Year competition.
