I planted these in a front border interspersed with mini daffodils. So far very successful.The plants have bushed out and after the first flowering and a trim, they are now flowering again. They give a nice splash of late summer colour.

Yes. Bowles Mauve is a great plant. Flowers and flowers all summer and still going. Needs cutting back to renew. It struggled a bit in the heat this year.

Beautiful plants whilst they lasted

2

I brought three plants and they looked beautiful for most of the season, I was really pleased how they grew and how they looked, then suddenly they all started dying from the inside of the plant. We cut that out hoping that would stop them dying but it didn't. For some strange reason none of them lasted although all the plants around them did. I'm thinking of trying again as when they were beautiful, they really were! Not sure if I'd recommend to a friend or not!!

Fun gardening

A firm favourite

This is an excellent, long flowering, drought tolerant standby for a sunny position. I use it in a narrow, west facing border by the house. Provided you keep dead-heading, it has a very long flowering season and provides dense, evergreen foliage too. Bees enjoy it.

Bees welcomed.

I promised to dig one up so that my daughter could have the bones of the Cat buried under it, but they are still vibrant.

Flowers almost all year, bees love it

5

Plant in an insect-friendly corner and it flowers almost non-stop. It does get straggly after a few years, but is fairly easy to propogate replacements if you plan ahead
