Description

A haze of purple flowers at head height from late summer to autumn, which is a confetti of butterflies the moment there is a glimpse of sun.

Mix it with Cosmos 'Purity' and Gaura lindheimeri to create a lovely, airy filling to a border, and there is no better plant for lining a path.

Care Tips

Leave the dead stalks until spring which helps protect from cold wet weather and because seeds may be appreciated by finches. Protect with a layer of leaf mould or compost mulch in autumn.
