  2. Great plant

    By Elizabeth Smeaton 27-05-2011

    I grew these from seed a few years ago, they were easy to grow and are now well established. They look great in my garden, they attract bees and butterflies, I leave the flower heads in place until autumn and the cut them down for the cold Scottish winter and they come back year after year. One of my garden favourites.
