A giant variety with intense purple compact globe-like flowers measuring up to 18cm across. Ambassador has a brilliant long flowering time in June ? July, followed by attractive seed heads that continue through the summer months. Its beautiful curled green leaves will wither before the flowers appear in early summer so we recommend accompanying them with low-growing plants to provide filling foliage over the base areas and covering up those stems. Height 120cm. Giant 20cm+ bulbs supplied.
