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


  • Position: partial shade
  • Soil: moist, well-drained, neutral to slightly alkaline soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: May and July
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    This clump-forming, semi evergreen perennial is an easy to grow plant, which looks great in naturalised planting schemes, where the double, magenta-pink flowers, that appear on tall, arching stems can be admired over a long period in summer.

  • Garden care: Dead-head regularly to prolong flowering. In autumn cut the faded flower-heads down to the ground and compost the dead stems.
