A glorified Heather relative. Started flowering this year in May, and still going strong at the end of November. For many years I have had problems growing Agapetes, but the wet weather this year seems to have suited this one. Brittle twiggy sprawling growth.

The plants has astonished me by flowering right through the winter. In a brief flurry of snow in April it was still flowering. The low temperatures seem to have produced rather paler flowers than usual, but they have carried on opening.

By July, the flowers are back to full colour.It has now flowered for a year and a half without a break, which is quite an achievement.
