More Details

The garden version of the British native wild flower Betony, which I love in the rose garden at Sissinghurst. It starts flowering with the roses and sustains the colour beneath them as they go over, flowering on and on. This is an excellent hard-working garden perennial and a good, aromatic rose companion plant.
