Additional Information

Pruning is best undertaken in early to mid spring, once all signs of frost have passed and when you can see the stem slightly bulging, as this is where a new shoot is developing. Undertaking a hard, annual prune will promote significant growth and an abundance of flowers. Apply a regular feed and water throughout active growth, especially during periods of drought. Propagate by soft wood cuttings in spring or summer. 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"
