    This striking and robust short-lived perennial that is a hybrid between the pink flowered D. purpurea and the yellow flowered D. grandiflora. The resulting plant produces bell-shaped flowers in late spring and early summer, which are an intriguing mix of the two shades.

  • Garden care: Ensure that the soil is kept moist in summer. After flowering cut back the flowered spikes to encourage more sideshoots. Cut down to the ground after flowering. Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted organic matter around the plant in early spring.

    These plants are short-lived perennials, although they will produce plenty of new side shoots and self-seed freely.

  • CAUTION toxic if eaten
