Straight, square-sectioned stems, support short fat spikes of hooded flowers in an unusual shade of purplish pink, which emerge from rosettes of long, mid-green leaves from June until August. This profusely-flowering plant will make its presence felt toward the front of your herbaceous border or easily stake a claim in your wildlife garden.
For best results, sow immediately onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and germination can sometimes be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. We sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination, as many seeds have built-in dormancy mechanisms, often waiting for natural spring germination, hence giving them a full season of growth.
