Description

This has shot into my top ten perennials and it is perennial with us in Sussex, reappearing even after the harsh winter of 2017/18.

It starts to flower in July, when roses and many perennials are tiring and continues to do so prolifically until your first clobber frost. The pink flowers remind me of lotus flowers - I absolutely LOVE it.

Care Tips

Protect young plants from frost and plant in a sunny, free-draining spot. Do not prune back in winter, keep current years growth and remove when new shoots appear. Mulch annually.
