Twinspur ( Diascia barberae )

Twinspur ( Diascia barberae )

Though the flowers are small, it has many flowers on long stems.
I found a small plant that had some small flowers at a gardening shop in winter. I bought it and planted in a pot. But it had no more flowers and faded soon.
When the spring wind started blowing, the stems grew longer and had buds on each stem. Now it has reached up to 40cm and has so many flowers. After I cut the faded stem, the new stems appear next to next.
As I hear it blooms for long from spring to autumn. I'm giving a fertilizer sometimes.
