    From early to mid spring, white flowers with pink sepals appear on the red-flushed stems, and slowly turn pink as they age. These flowers look luminous against the backdrop of the rich-green foliage, making this popular cultivar a very effective choice for shadier positions.

    Tall spikes clothed in pure white flowers that fade to pink appear in spring above large, mid-green leaves. A favourite of plantswoman Beth Chatto, this robust plant is great for edging well-trodden paths or planted in groups as ground cover, or providing a foil for delicate plants.

  • Garden care: After flowering remove faded flowerheads. Cut off damaged foliage in spring. Lift and divide large clumps in early spring.
