This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: well-drained, neutral to alkaline
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: May to October
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    This free-flowering perennial has slightly fleshy blue-green leaves on upright stems, topped with sweetly scented, off white flowers with a pinkish tinge from late spring. Cut back after flowering to encourage a second flush.

    Garden care: Deadhead regularly throughout the summer to prolong flowering. In autumn cut the plant back down to the ground and compost the dead stems.
