Description

A rather striking cultivar of foam flower, 'Iron Butterfly' has attractive deeply divided large lime green leaves with bold deep purple central markings.

Flowering from late spring into early summer in a deliciously scented display of palest pink starry flowers, this delicate plant  punches high above its weight and is perfect for lighting up a shadier spot in the garden.  A good choice for groundcover or edging a path through a woodland garden, its preference for dappled shade to light shade makes it ideal for a north or east facing planter close to a doorway too.  It needs a rich and damp but free draining soil to thrive.
