It is also drought tolerant once established. Try it in a rock garden, at the edge of a raised border or as part of a cottage garden scheme.

  • Garden care: In autumn rejuvenate plants that are beginning to look jaded by removing old flowered stems and leaves. Lift and divide large colonies in spring.
