Slender spikes of charming white flowers appear above the greyish-green foliage throughout summer and early autumn. These plants are easy to grow and are tolerant of a wide range of conditions - they are especially valuable for hot dry spots where they will self-seed freely. This is a compact form which will rarely need staking but will provide long lasting colour and vertical interest towards the front of a border.

  • Garden care: Dead-head regularly if you dont want seedlings popping up.
