In early summer large, dense clusters of lavender/purple flowers, which look amazingly like lollipops, open above dark green narrow leaves and it is a good choice for attracting butterflies to your garden. Its relatively fine texture sets it apart from other garden plants with less refined foliage and it makes an excellent cut flower.
Sow seeds at any time covering them with compost or grit 5mm deep, keeping the seed pot in a cool, well-lit spot outdoors. Artificial heat is not needed and can prevent germination so be very patient as many species will only germinate in the spring after chilling or freezing in the moist seed tray in the winter. Grow on individual seedlings in small pots until of sufficient size to be potted on or planted out into the open ground.
