A real breakthrough in flower colour this selection has white flowers with a pink picotee edge. It is a bushy, clump-forming perennial, which poduces its flowers for a long period from late spring to early autumn. This plant will grow to around 75cms tall so is suited to the middle or back of any sunny border. A stunner from Hardy's Cottage Plants, it was launched at The Chelsea Flower Show in 2008.
- Garden care: Resist the temptation to cut back after the plant has flowered, as it takes on beautiful autumn tints, particularly in cold weather. Cut back and divide large colonies in spring.
