Heart shaped leaves which can grow up to 8cm long, clothe the upright stems of this clump-forming perennial. These stems are topped by loose clusters of fragrant, lilac-white flowers in late spring and early summer. Once the flowers fade, they are followed by flat elliptical seed pods, which age to a beige colour that look like big, papery coins. If undisturbed, these will stay on the plant well into winter providing a long season of interest.Position: full sun or partial shade
Soil: fertile, moist but well-drained soil
Rate of growth: average
Flowering period: May and June
Flower colour: lilac-white
Hardiness: fully hardy
Garden care Easy to propagate from seed - just sow them in a seedbed in spring to produce new plants. Keep the soil damp until germination takes place. If the seedlings become over-crowded, thin out to 15cm (6in) apart. In autumn transplant the seedlings to their final flowering site 30cm (12in) apart.
