Description

One of our most beautiful — and one of my long-standing favourite wild flowers for meadows and naturalistic containers.

Called ‘Fox and Cubs’, because of the rich colour of its flowers, surrounded by blood orange coloured cubs (or buds). A truly lovely and easy to grow British native, pretty, cut for a vase with cow-parsley and grasses.

Care Tips

Cut back after flowering. Will self-seed freely. Deadhead if you do not want it to spread.
