The very best in British grown plants
Description - A long-blooming selection for the middle to back of the border, featuring wands of dusky violet-blue flowers. Plants form a compact bush of licorice-scented green leaves. Both the flowers and leaves are edible and fun to sprinkle into salads. Attractive to butterflies. Removing faded blooms will help to lengthen the flowering time. Especially attractive in combination with Rudbeckia or Purple Coneflower. Although this is a hybrid, the parents are native North American wildflowers, so this is a good choice for natural meadow gardens. This Perennial plant is also in our award-winning Kind to Nature collection. It is now widely accepted that gardens are vital for the survival of the UK’s wildlife. Gardens make up the majority of the green space in Britain and make significant contribution to the conservation of wildlife. Pollen and nectar rich plants are attractive to many species of insect. Pollen provides a source of protein needed for insect egg production and nectar is a valuable source of carbohydrates needed for energy. Plant your flowers in groups because en masse colour and scent is easier for insects to detect.
