Lovely pink blooms which will bring bees and butterflies to your garden. Clump forming. Prefer well drained soil.
Plant in full sun, in well-drained soil, with some added fertiliser. Ensure they have adequate moisture all year round. They are frost tolerant Their emerging leaves need to be protected from snails in early spring, but apart from that they appear subject to no other pests or diseases. The stems can be cut to the ground in winter. They are very attractive to insects and butterflies and have some medicinal qualities which can be extracted from the leaves, roots and flowers.
