  • Rate of growth: slow-growing

    A graceful, evergreen perennial, with arching stems of bell-shaped, pale pink to magenta or occasionally white flowers which seem to dangle above the clumps of grass-like foliage. The stems look delicate, but are actually very tough and appear to tremble in the breeze. Angel's fishing rod is perfect for introducing movement to a well-drained border in a sunny, sheltered site, or for overhanging water. Initially slow to establish, it looks particularly good with early autumn-flowering ornamental grasses. Unfortunately though, as it is quite deep rooted, it is not suitable for pots.

  • Garden care: Water freely during the growing season, but avoid excessive winter wet. Cut away old foliage in early spring and if necessary lift and divide congested colonies at the same time.
