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

    Heaven by name and heavenly by nature, this tall, elegant plant looks incredible when planted in bold swathes through a herbaceous border. Its striking architectural outline also makes it a good plant for potting up and using as a specimen on a sunny patio. The strappy, semi-evergreen foliage and large heads of up to 80 pure white, trumpet-shaped flowers give it a Mediterranean air, and make it a must-have summer plant.

  • Garden care: Keep well-watered during the growing season, applying a balance 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. In cold, exposed areas protect the crown of the plant with a deep, dry winter mulch.
