Heaven by name and heavenly by nature, this tall, elegant plant looks incredible when planted in bold swathes through a herbaceous border. Its striking architectural outline also makes it a good plant for potting up and using as a specimen on a sunny patio. The strappy, semi-evergreen foliage and large heads of up to 80 pure white, trumpet-shaped flowers give it a Mediterranean air, and make it a must-have summer plant.
- Garden care:Keep well-watered during the growing season, applying a balance liquid fertiliser each month from spring until the plant flowers. In cold, exposed areas protect the crown of the plant with a deep, dry winter mulch.
