Description

‘Miss Piggy' certainly isn’t a quiet addition to the border, she sings and shouts with huge, 25cm diameter, double ruffled soft pink blooms that surround a dark purple heart in late spring and early summer. This unusual form will be an instant focal point in new or established borders.

Care Tips

Provide support to protect from wind and rain. Cut to ground level after flowering and the leaves will quickly grow again to form a backdrop for other plants in the border. Propagate by division in spring.
