A wonderful cottage garden plant but with a more unusual flower - white that blushes plum-pink from the centre. Drained soil in sun. 75cm.
Rosettes of felted grey leaves send up strong stems with masses of the white flowers that slowly develop the pink centre over many weeks in summer and autumn. A relatively short lived perennial so allow it to self seed (it comes true). Ideal for growing in gravel gardens or allow it to mingle along the edge of paths etc. Easy to pull out the unwanted extras.
Height will be dependant on moisture and nutrient availability - starve it for compact growth. Best in sandy or gravelly soils in full sun but it will grow almost anywhere not too wet, even happy in light shade.
