Attractive to bees and butterflies. Flowerheads can be left on during winter adding texture to your border. In February and March cut back and apply a generous mulch around the base of the plant. Propagate by division or by softwood cuttings from spring to mid summer. All parts may cause mild stomach upset if ingested, contact with sap may irritate existing skin allergies. Fully hardy perennial.
All our plants have a guideline temperature for how well they will tolerate winter cold.
Fully hardy perennials will withstand temperatures down to -15 °C (5°F) and often lower. Hardy perennials are happy down to at least -5°C (23°F) Half hardy perennials can withstand down to around 0°C (32°F)
And Tender perennials may be damaged by temperatures below 5°C (41°F)
Please remember that temperatures can vary significantly within quite a small area, and hardiness can be affected by soil, position and other factors.
