Striking, burgundy flower spikes on long slender stems flower continuously from May to September. The attractive, crinkled, rosettes of silver-green foliage are an excellent foil for the flowers, which are also highly attractive to butterflies.
Its glaucous silvery leaves are ideal for teaming with tactile grasses like Panicum and Miscanthus. Its intense colouring brings an air of opulence and depth to any border and its slender pointed spires arch over elegantly. This characteristic only adds to its beauty and looks sensational in the vase.
All our plants are supplied in at least 9x10cm pots. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants planted in bigger pots at the same time. We do not sell 'plug plants' because those need to be grown on before planting. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant. We grow everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside.
