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

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: any moist soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: July to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Tall, purple-flushed, leafy stems, which rarely need supporting, are topped with large dome-shaped clusters of small pinkish-mauve flowers from late summer to mid autumn. Wonderful for adding height at the back of the border.

  • Garden care: Cut back and compost the stems after flowering. Renmove unwanted seedlings as they appear.
