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

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: moderately fertile, well-drained, neutral to slightly alkaline soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Soft, button-like flowerheads appear for a long period throughout the summer on branching, wiry stems. These hover above the mounds of fern-like grey-green foliage, which contrasts well with their soft pink colouring. A delightful perennial for a sunny herbaceous border or wildflower garden, where they will thrive in well drained, neutral to alkaline soils.

  • Garden care: Protect young plants from slug damage using environmentally friendly slug pellets or beer traps. Deadhead regularly to prolong flowering and cut back the faded flower stems in autumn.
