Why We Love It

Enjoy some tropical colour in your garden with the Polyanthus 'Show Stopper Calypso'. This plant may be small but it is definitely eye-catching: it packs a powerful punch with its clusters of large showy purple and yellow flowers that bloom from late winter to early spring bringing bright colour to warm up your winter garden.

At between 10 and 25 cm high this evergreen perennial is ideal for growing in a container and would make a cheerful window box plant. Alternatively use it to add some colour at the front of a border – plant it alongside spring-flowering bulbs for a dramatic display when the seasons change. This exotic-looking plant will enjoy a spot in full sun or partial shade.

The decorative pot is sold separately. Find the perfect base for any style of planting explore our full range of pots here.

How to Plant

Your Polyanthus 'Show Stopper Calypso' will grow best in moist soil, in full sun or partial shade. It's quite hardy so will be able to thrive in a more open area, as well as in a window box or patio container. During the flowering months, you can remove faded or dead blooms to boost the display.

Into the Ground

Grab some planting compost, some general fertiliser and your spade. Then, you're ready to go.

  1. Soak the roots of your 'Show Stopper Calypso' in its temporary pot.
  2. Mix some planting compost and general fertiliser into your soil.
  3. Dig a hole twice the size of your plant's rootball.
  4. Place your plant into the hole. Ensure the top of the rootball is level with the top of the soil.
  5. Refill your hole. Firm the soil and water well.
Into a Pot

  1. If your container has drainage holes, cover them with some stones or pieces of broken pot.
  2. Begin to fill your container with compost.
  3. Place your plant in the pot.
  4. Continue filling your container to the top, ensuring that the top of the rootball will be level with the top of the compost.
