Plant for partial shade
From a rosette of hairy leaves rise stems bearing large satiny flowers of violet purple in early summer. Flowers are attractive to pollinating insects.
Require an evenly moist, rich soil in cool shade. These are not always easy to please. Plants are not long lived, typically flowering in the second or third year, setting seed, then dying out.

Our web shop is now open for you to browse and make your selection from. We only send plants out Monday (not Bank Holidays) to Wednesday. This is to avoid packages being left in the postage system over the weekend. Shipping plants and keeping them healthy along the process is an intricate matter. As we care for the plants we sell we deliver them in a way that ensures they have enough to drink and enough protection between our nursery and your home.
Typically sent out via Royal Mail's First Class signed for delivery service or United Parcels Service (UPS) next day delivery. Postage charges depend on the total weight of plants you buy, see full details here: Read ›
