  • Position: partial shade
  • Soil: humus-rich soil
  • Rate of growth: average to fast
  • Flowering period: June to July

    From amongst the basal rosette of foliage, upright branching flower spikes emerge, encircled by green buds, which open to soft lavender-rose coloured trumpets. Bees adore the flowers, which usually appear in their first year.

  • 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 5-7 cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted organic matter around the plant in early spring.

    These plants are mainly short-lived perennials, although if happy they will produce plenty of new sideshoots and self-seed freely.
