Additional Information

Attractive to bees and butterflies. Scented. Perfect for borders and containers. Deadhead to encourage more blooms, 'Early Birds' varieties can be sheared lightly to keep them flowering longer. Propagate by taking cuttings from non flowering shoots in summer. They can survive temperatures as low as -27 degrees. They survive this in the ground rather than in pots. Make sure soil is well drained and avoid winter wet which can be harmful. Fully hardy perennial.

"Thank you ladies for your beautiful plants.
Praise also, for the Bulrush Compost, of which I have purchased 8 bags during the past six months. It is superb and my garden has flourished.
Bless you,
Kind wishes"
