    Dark magenta buds open to purple-pink tubular flowers from midsummer onwards, adding colour to the garden for several months. The flowers are loved by butterflies, attracting them in their droves, so this makes a wonderful addition to a wildlife- friendly planting scheme. Compact and very easy to grow, but offering long-lasting colour.

  • Garden care: Prune back hard in March, removing all of the previous year's growth to three or four buds.
