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

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, moist, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: fast
  • Flowering period: May to August
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Trifoliate blue-green leaves covered in soft hairs, offer a beautiful contrast for the conical clusters of magenta-red flowers, which open from silvery buds in summer. Attractive to beneficial insects including butterflies and bees, it is wonderful in naturalised planting styles.

  • Garden care: Grow in moist but well drained soil with a neutral pH in a sunny spot.
