This perennial is semi-evergreen so it can lose some of its leaves in winter. In colder regions or more exposed gardens, it may lose them all, but then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

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

    A popular modern pink with clove-scented, double, pale pink flowers with red centres from early summer through to autumn. The fine, silvery-green foliage makes a lovely frame for the masses of flowers. Old-fashioned by reputation, and short-lived by nature, this is none the less a robust plant with a long flowering period that will tolerate a wide range of conditions. It is best planted towards the front of a perennial border or rock garden, or in a pot.

  • Garden care:
  • Incorporate lots of well-rotted manure or garden compost into the planting hole. Apply a balanced fertiliser in spring and deadhead to prolong flowering.
