  • Position: full sun to partial shade
  • Soil: moist, humus-rich soil
  • Rate of growth: average to fast-growing
  • Flowering period: May to July
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Tubular, apricot-pink flowers that are attractively spotted inside their throat with brownish-maroon, form along one side of the impressive spike in early summer. Over a period of several months, they open from the base upwards above the slightly hairy foliage.

  • 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-ro tted organic matter around the plant in early spring.

    These plants are mainly biennial, although they will produce plenty of new sideshoots and self-seed freely.

  • CAUTION toxic if eaten
