We can think of few better woodland drought-tolerant groundcovers for summer flowering than this amazing gesneriad! We have trialed a number of achimenes for winter hardiness and Achimenes 'Harry Williams' has not only survived single digits F, but has stood out from the other survivors by its incredible garden performance. Emerging in June, the fuzzy green foliage adorns short stems, topped, starting in early July with a stunning show of beautiful pansy-shaped flowers that emerge crimson red then morph to crimson violet, both with a contrasting yellow throat. Light shade to morning sun is best for peak performance.
