  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average to fast-growing
  • Flowering period: May to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Striking, burgundy flower spikes on long slender stems flower continuously from May to September. The attractive, crinkled, rosettes of silver-green foliage are an excellent foil for the flowers, which are also highly attractive to butterflies. A versatile plant that spreads slowly and performs best in a moist border in sun or partial shade, or it can be grown in a pot on the patio. It makes an excellent cut flower, too.

  • Garden care: Incorporate lots of organic matter when planting. Do not allow to dry out. Apply a generous 5-7cm mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plants in spring and lift and divide congested colonies.
