5 plug plants for immediate dispatch
A beautiful easily-grown perennial with dark pink pin cushion flowers in summer. It loves a damp soil and will often self seed throughout the border although its offspring may differ slightly in colour. When grown as a group its lush foliage makes good ground cover. A resilient plant that will grow well in full sun, clay and exposed to all the elements, but its ideal choice would include some shade and reliably moist but drained soil. When planting in sunnier positions it is particularly important to add plenty of humus. Mulching will conserve moisture and help suppress weeds. Water copiously in dry weather especially if plants are only recently established. It will tolerate full sun as long as roots are kept moist. Perfect for under-planting around woodland plants – can help keep away slugs, as they dont like it!
