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

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

    Flowering over a prolonged period throughout summer and autumn, this is a great little plant for adding colour to the herbaceous border. The show starts when upright stems rise up above the foliage, each bearing clusters of up to 30 rich purple buds. These open over several months to large soft lilac-silver bells, which together with the buds, create a bicoloured effect. This hard-working, no-fuss perennial is ideally suited to cottage garden schemes and the flowers will be sought after by bees.

  • Garden care: Protect the tender foliage from slug damage using environmentally-friendly slug pellets or beer traps. During the growing season water freely and apply a balanced liquid fertiliser each month. Cut back after flowering both to prevent self-seeding and to encourage a second flush of flowers.
