Description

A more compact, easier-to-contain variety than ‘Six Hills Giant’ but still a top ranking pollinator plant, stuffed with nectar.

Clouds of bluey-mauve flowers form on silvery, aromatic foliage, blooming throughout the summer.

Care Tips

Cut back lightly after flowering to promote a second flush of flowers. Cut back hard in autumn for vigorous new growth in spring. Divide large clumps in spring or autumn.
