    A beautiful double flowered cultivated form of our native Ragged Robin, Jenny has large fluffy double pink flowers from early summer to early autumn. It is easy to grow and responds well to being cut hard back to encourage a second flush of flowers later in the year. Good for informal flower borders or beds. Combines well with other late flowering perennials such as Achillea and Perovskia.

  • Garden care: Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted compost around the base of the plant in early spring. Cut back the faded flowerheads in late summer and autumn.
