This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: well-drained, fertile soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: July to October
  • Hardiness: frost hardy

    When in flower (for many months from midsummer), this aromatic perennial is an impressive sight. The flowers are a lush shade of reddish pink, with just a hint of purple, and they seem to mix with just about everything. They also appear in abundance and will help attract beneficial pollinators including bees. 'Red Fortune' is a low maintenance plant, that is happiest in a sunny, slightly sheltered spot with freely draining soil.

  • Garden care: They can be short-lived, but are easily propagated by semi-ripe cuttings in early summer. Avoid excessive winter wet and don't cut back the faded flower-stems in until early spring, as they provide interest in the winter months.
