This easy to grow perennial is well suited to any sunny situation and will tolerate even poor soil. Produces mounds of fragrant foliage and flowers in a range of colours during early summer. Flat-top flowers contrast well with tall-spire perennials.
A good choice for a cut flower garden.
These flowers are delivered to you as young plants that are around 12cm (5in) from root to tip.
Plants at this stage are at the perfect stage of development to grow and flower really fast once planted.
If you receive your plants before April pot up into larger pots and plant out into containers or beds from April onwards.
On a pleasant and dry spring or summer day plant out into soil and water well. As the plants start to flower add a high potassium fertiliser to give your flowers a real boost.
Healthy plants and have done well after potting on, just about to plant out
Perennial plants are the mainstay of the flower garden; many will flower all summer, becoming dormant in autumn to reappear in spring. Perennials tend to be non-fussy plants and are easy to look after - they just need the old stems cutting back in late autumn, which helps to promote new stems and vigorous growth the following spring, getting bigger and better every year!
