Rome produces large light purple flowers with clear white stamens in the centre in early summer that continue over a long flowering period, with an added bonus of a second flush of flowers towards the end of summer. Five or six flowers will often be developed on each 40-50cm long flowering stem allowing the display to last longer whether inside or out. Grows to height of 1.5-2m (5-6½'); spread 90-100cm (3'-3'3"). Supplied in a 7cm pot, plant size 15-25cm.
