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

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: moderately fertile, moist but well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June to September
  • Hardiness: frost hardy (may need winter protection)

    Appearing on airy (and increasingly lengthy) spikes throughout the summer, the flowers of this sun-loving sage are typically bicoloured - but occasionally solid white or red flowers can appear, often as a result of a change in temperature. A cottage garden classic, it will usually flower for months on end!

  • Garden care: To prolong flowering remove the flower spikes as soon they start to fade. Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant in spring. Protect from excessive cold and waterlogged soils.
