A rare clump forming hardy perennial which produces reddish purple thistle-like flowers on strong arching stems from midsummer. Attractive seedheads through autmun and winter. Good soil in sun or light shade. 1.5m.

A plant we have grown for many years but rarely propagated before, we now have good stock.  Tight clumps produce fairly large deep green leaves and the flower stems are well developed by early summer.  The flower buds slowly develop and weigh down the tips of the flower stems to produce the arching habit by the time the flowers open.  Long lived, tough and easy to please!

We have it growing in light shade under a birch tree where it dries out quite a lot in summer - it's quite happy there.  To 1.5m in our soil.
