More Details

This has shot into my top ten perennials and it is perennial with us in Sussex, reappearing even after the harsh winter of 2017/18.

It starts to flower in July, when roses and many perennials are tiring and continues to do so prolifically until your first clobber frost. The pink flowers remind me of lotus flowers - I absolutely LOVE it.

Reviewed 7th August 2019 by Mrs Longman

Bought this after Sarah Raven's recommendation saying it would bring colour to the garden when the roses stopped blooming.
The plant looks tall and healthy. Only one flower spike ( and that wasn't very impressive). Really disappointed
