    A colourful plant for watersides, pond banks and woodland borders where the soil remains slightly moist, this clump forming perennial produces tall spikes of reddish-purple star shaped summer flowers. A relatively fast-grower, the flowers are also rich in nectar, so are popular with the pollinators.

  • Garden care: Plant out in reliably moist soil, or pot up into a pond basket and place at the margins of a pond. Cut back flowers and foliage as they fade.
