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, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June and July
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Compact yet sturdy, the stems of this summer-flowering perennial carry smaller than average leaves, which makes the flowerspikes perfect for cutting and adding to the vase. In the border, weave them through in generous drifts and they will add form and structure that will help break up the monotony of too many rounded shapes.

  • Garden care: Stake with bamboo canes in mid-spring. During the growing season apply a balanced liquid fertiliser every 2-3 weeks and wearing gloves cut back the faded flower-stems to a flowering side-shoot. At the end of autumn cut back and compost the faded flower stems.
  • Harmful if eaten
