Diascia (Diascia Barberae Pink Queen) - Also known as Twinspur, this little gem is an abundantly flowering plant which has a mounding, spreading habit and rose-colored flowers. This popular plant can easily be grown from Diascia seeds and used as a bedding, basket, or container plant. It is commonly grown as an annual but survives as an evergreen perennial where hard frosts do not occur.
Twinspur Diascia has wiry stems and small heart-shaped leaves. Its delicate, colorful flowers will bloom from early summer until late fall. Each small bloom is tubular with a prominent lip and two rear spurs, or nectaries. As the name implies, these nectaries contain nectar which attract bees and butterflies, and even an occasional hummingbird.
