More Details

Plant this in a border with tall flowering plants like alliums, lupins and verbascum.

The foliage is smokey, soft and feathery with an ethereal quality, perfect for setting off those sorts of slender and elegant flowers. The key thing is to keep cutting it back as it’s the young foliage that looks best and this will also stop it flowering. Highly aromatic, aniseed scent.
