The nodding deep purple spider-like flowers appear in mid spring to early summer and occasionally have a second flush in late summer. These are followed by attractive silky seedheads which can last until autumn. Its compact habit makes it ideal for pots and containers.

  • Garden care: No routine pruning is necessary. If the spread of the plant needs to be restricted, prune immediately after flowering, cutting back overlong shoots to healthy buds. Apply a slow-release balanced fertiliser and a mulch of well-rotted garden compost around the base of the plant in early spring.
