  • Ideal for beds, borders, underplanting shrubs or roses, cottage gardens or containers. Plant in groups for best visual impact.

  • Watch for snails and slugs, powdery mildew and rust diseases.
  • Do not cut back after flowering if self-seeding is desired. However, removing of the spent flower spikes may encourage second flush of flowers.
  • Easily divided in spring or fall.
  • Propagate by seed. Surface sow seeds from late spring to early summer. In milder areas sow directly in the fall
