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

  • Soil: Moderately fertile, moist, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: Average
  • Flowering period: May to August
  • Hardiness: Fully hardy

A native clump forming perennial that flowers throughout the summer. Long spikes of violet-blue flowers (however sometimes the flowers can be variable -either pink or white), are held on erect stems above large basal leaves from early summer. This deciduous wildflower is perfect for a wilder section of your garden, but will still look good in a cottage garden border, and is loved by bees.

  • Garden care:
    To prolong flowering, cut out spent flower spikes as soon as they start to fade, leaving foliage to mature into rich autumn tones. Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant in spring.
