Description

Height x Spread: 60cm x 45cm

This very pretty variety has green and white outer bracts encircling a soft pink inner pincushion.

Its delicate colouration combines beautifully with dark red Astrantia for a cool look, or pinkish-purple Salvia for a warmer tone.   These plants are very successful in a moisture retentive soil in part shade or sun, but especially so in clay soils.  They make reasonable sized clumps quickly and require splitting quite regularly, say every 3 years.  Cuts and dries extremely well for arrangements.
