Description

Height x Spread: 30cm x 30cm

Vivid, rose pink flowers with dark reddish purple bracts are carried in slender spikes above fuzzy, sage-scented, grey green foliage. Bred in Germany by Christof Kleinhanns. Deadheading above outward growing unflowered stems will help extend the display. Very attractive to bees and butterflies, this easy to grow plant is tough and once established, drought tolerant.

Bushy and compact, the flowers of this Balkan Clary really deliver a shot of colour, whether planted at the front of a border in groups or as spot plants in a gravel garden. Alternatively plant it in drifts through low grasses, where it will add contrasting texture and long lasting colour. To get the best performance plant it in full sun, in a moist but free draining soil, that is fairly fertile
