    Native to parts of the UK, this tufted perennial has upright hairy stems, that are surrounded by tiers of stalk-less leaves. In mid-spring to early summer, there are also whorls of star-shaped pale yellow flowers, which sit above each tier of leaves and have a honey-like scent. In its native environment, it colonises meadows, riverbanks and open scrub, so in a garden setting, this crosswort will thrive in relaibly moist but well-drained soil, that has a neutral to alkialine pH.

  • Garden care: Lift and divide large clumps in autumn or early spring.
