A classic achimene that's been brightening window boxes and sills for generations, Harry Williams is colorful, cheery and floriferous. One of the most temperature hardy of the group, this achimene is suited to outdoor setting in parts of the country where limited freezes occur. Harry Williams blooms from June through autumn with fuchsia pansy-like flowers terminating in speckled yellow throats.
