Description

This native British plant with lilac pincushion flowers is an excellent provider of nectar and is loved by hoverflies, bees and butterflies.

It works well planted en masse and establishes well, self-sowing happily so is good for meadow planting schemes.

Care Tips

Easy to establish and liable to self-seed, but unlikely to be invasive.
