Description

This hardy naturalising perennial is ideal for growing in grass or borders, but for a real indulgence drop them into a large luxurious container collection.

Care Tips

A deep planting will make stronger plants less likely to snap and more reliably perennial. Position on a bed of grit, on their side and backfill with plenty of grit to aid drainage.
