Delicate single clear-lavender flowers dance on slender, wiry stems enjoying the attentions of visiting bees and butterflies in search of their rich supply of nectar from June all the way through to September. The foliage forms a loose clump of deeply serrated leaves, making this an attractive plant for the front of an herbaceous border. Plant in a sunny position in well-drained soil, although it will tolerate some shade if you haven't got quite the right spot in full sun, and dead-head regularly to keep the flowers coming and to control self-seeding.
Sow immediately at any time onto preferably a soil-based compost, covering with fine grit to approximately their own depth. Germination MAY be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. but many seeds WILL NOT come up the year they are sown, needing winter chilling after sowing, and ONLY come up with natural spring germination.
