More Details

A popular border plant with plump silvery green foliage and bright pink flower heads, packed with tiny star-shaped flowers, deepening in colour as they age to a rich copper in autumn.

It will attract bees and butterflies in summer and if you leave the seedheads in place, birds through autumn and winter.

Very little care and attention is required but it will benefit from a ‘Chelsea Chop’ in May to help maintain a neat shape.

These are okay but not taken as well as I had hoped, maybe they will establish over the season and be better next year.
