Dense heads of tiny pale purple or lilac flowers over large heart-shaped deeply veined leaves. Very attractive plant for the herbaceous border that will thrive in full sun or part shade on damp but well drained soil. Attractive to bees. Can be propagated by division once established.
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.
