Grown at Dibley's Nurseries, Wales
S. 'Falling Stars' is a remarkably floriferous hybrid which has brought great credit to its creators, Dibley's Nurseries, in north Wales. As many as 25 flowers may be born on a single stalk, and the weight of the flowers often causes the stalk to bow gracefully over the side of the pot. A well grown plant can look like a solid mound of pale lavender, as in the example here. A close-up of the flowers may be seen by clicking here -- another closeup (grown by hybridizer Chris Rose) is also on the site.
