  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: moderately fertile, well-drained, neutral to slightly alkaline soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Produced freely from spring to autumn, the larger than average flowerheads create a real impact in a sunny border. Keep cutting them for the vase to encourage more to form (they look great in more naturalised arrangements), but keep plenty for the bees and butterflies - its a firm favourite of theirs.

  • Garden care: Protect young plants from slug damage using environmentally friendly slug pellets or beer traps. Deadhead regularly to prolong flowering and cut back the faded flower stems in autumn.
