This attractive perennial has slender strap-shaped foliage that is topped with pretty pink flowers for a long period throughout summer. It originates from mountainous regions throughout central and southern Europe and is a better behaved relative of the rosebay willowherb which is not as invasive but is still fast growing, disease resistant and vigorous. It looks super when allowed to form large swathes in a border or incorporated into a naturalised planting scheme.

  • Garden Care: Dead heading regularly will keep the flowers coming and will also prevent self-seeding. Lift and divide over-large clumps in autumn or spring.
