It makes a bold clump when grown in damp soil and is an excellent waterside plant. Organically grown in peat free compost. A good pollinator plant. Pot size 1.5 litre.
Care & Maintenance.
Cut hard back to the ground in early spring, when a scattering of organic fertiliser around the plant is beneficial.
