    Upright spires of white-eyed violet-blue flowers appear from the clumps of deeply lobed mid-green leaves in early summer providing a magestic profile in the border. For the best results chose a site sheltered from strong winds, stake the stems in mid-spring and cut back the faded flower-heads promptly.

  • Garden care: Protect young foliage against slug and snail damage in spring. Stake with bamboo canes in mid-spring before the flowers appear. During the growing season apply a balanced liquid fertiliser every 2-3 weeks and wearing gloves cut back the faded flower-stems to a flowering side-shoot to encourage repeat flowering. At the end of autumn cut back and compost the faded flower-stems.
