This shrub is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: July to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Rich in nectar and irresistable to butterflies, the cone-shaped clusters of rich purple flowers, not only look great, but they'll also help sustain vital pollinators. A recently introduced hybrid, these plants are reliably compact, so they're perfect for placing at the front of the border - and they will also do really well when potted up and placed near a sunny entrance or patio.

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