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 slightly alkaline soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June to August
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    The frilly outer florets of this showy cultivar surround a somewhat domed eye, which together form showy heads that top tall and sturdy stems. A delightful sun-lover, which blooms over a long period in summer.

    Garden care: Protect young plants from slug damage using environmentally friendly slug pellets or beer traps. Deadhead regularly to prolong flowering and cut back in autumn to maintain tidy habit and form. Avoid winter wet.
