Achimene Peach Blossom is a soft pink flowering variety, with blooms decorated by a plum kiss in each flowers' center. This is one of the best bloomers, producing a generous number of flowers on gently trailing plants. Peach Blossom achimenes bloom June through mid to late autumn. Foliage is deep green with a burgundy reverse.
