A graceful, hazy plant with airy spikes of pastel-pink star-shaped flowers, with long anthers like daddy long-legs held on slender upright stems from May to September. The foliage is pretty too - lance shaped and flushed burgundy. This exceptionally long-flowering perennial looks equally at home in an informal cottage-style garden or among soft grasses in a naturalistic planting scheme. It is exceptionally drought-tolerant and will soak up the sun.

  • Garden care: Resist the temptation to cut back after the plant has flowered as it takes on beautiful autumn tints particularly in cold weather. Cut back and divide large colonies in spring.
