Soft, button-like flowerheads appear for a long period throughout the summer on branching, wiry stems. These hover above the mounds of fern-like grey-green foliage, which contrasts well with their soft pink colouring. A delightful perennial for a sunny herbaceous border or wildflower garden, where they will thrive in well drained, neutral to alkaline soils. Garden care: Protect young plants from slug damage using environmentally friendly slug pellets or beer traps. Deadhead regularly to prolong flowering and cut back the faded flower stems in autumn.
