Description: 'Diana's Memory' is a herbaceous perennial to about 70cm high with dark green foliage. Double flowers to 10cm across are borne from mid-summer into autumn and comprise creamy-white petals flushed with pink and marked with yellow at the base.

Care: Plant tubers 10-15cm deep in fertile, humus-rich, well-drained soil, in full sun; cut back to near ground level in mid-autumn, then in mild areas and on well-drained soils leave the tubers in the ground and protect with a deep organic mulch, while in colder areas or on heavy soils lift and store the tubers and replant in late spring after all danger of frost has passed. Propagate by basal softwood cuttings taken in spring from shoots from stored tubers, or divide the tubers, ensuring that each division has a viable bud. Deadhead to prolong flowering.
