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: moderately fertile, moist, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: July to August
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Self-supporting spires of bluey-mauve flowers from July to August above whorls of deep green leaves. The delicate, tubular flowers add vertical interest to the back of a border and associate well with prairie style planting. Best grown in a fertile, moist, well-drained soil in full sun or partial shade.

  • Garden care: Divide plants in spring. Apply a generous 5-7cm mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant in spring.
