Description

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.

Care Tips

Plants may benefit from a mid season (May) chop to encourage compact growth. Leave the seed heads through winter as birds love them.
