"This sun-loving trouper deserves a long service medal - the mauve flower spikes comes out with the tulips (or earlier) and are still going strong in September"

Great service

A lovely plant. Originally a wall flower they grown into the most attractive ball-shaped bush that keeps on producing flowers all year. The bees love them, and they're easy to maintain - jus snip off the flower shoots when they get leggy and more come along.

The plant was very small when it arrived in March, but it was established really quickly and by summer we had flowers and it has grown to a medium sized plant, with minimal care (Watered it a few times, added some feed a few times, but very irregularly. Given it was a dry summer it did very well). As a general tip: this plant tends to grow large and towards the sun so plant it with that in mind. When established it has a very long flowering period even sometimes in winter. Hardy.
