Part of the Lion series developed in Holland for enhanced fruit production, ‘Sweet Lion’ IS a real sweetie with tight form, lots of bloom and fantastic fruit that persists through fall and into winter. Tight and rounded, ‘Sweet Lion’ loads up with buds in early June that open soon thereafter to reveal bright yellow, nickel sized flowers that tend to bloom in tight groups and cover the plant for 3 to 4 weeks. As the bloom fades, bunches of green, small, almost triangular shaped berries take their place and gradually change to deep pinkish-red as summer fades. These berries last a long time and can be cut for bright, sparkling arrangements with other cut flowers. ‘Sweet Lion’ is an easy care plant wanting only well-drained soil, full sun and little else to put on a dependable show year after year. Be sure to cut the plant back each early spring for best new growth and bloom.
