  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, moist, well-drained soil (or John Innes no 3 compost for containers)
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: July to September
  • Hardiness: half hardy (will need protection in winter)

    Recently introduced, this showy perennial puts on a marvelous show in midsummer when the umbels of rich purple buds open to reveal soft lilac coloured flowers, which have a darker streak running down the length of each petal.

  • Garden care: Keep well-watered during the growing season, applying a balanced liquid fertiliser each month from spring until the plant flowers. Towards the end of September ease back on the watering and feeding of plants in containers to allow the foliage to toughen up. Overwinter container-grown specimens in a cool greenhouse or conservatory, watering sparingly.
