beard tongue

Perfect for pollinators £5.99 £3.99
Pot size 9cm pot
9cm pot
  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: July to October
  • Hardiness: frost hardy (will need winter protection in cold areas)

    White throated tubular-bell-shaped flowers top upright clumps of glossy, green foliage. Ideal in a cottage garden setting where their soft colouring blends easily with richer pinks, purples and blues.

  • Garden care: Remove the faded blooms regularly to prolong flowering. Apply a dry mulch around the base of the plant to protect the roots from frost damage and cut back in spring when new shoots appear low down on the stem. Lift and divide congested clumps in spring.
