A small, neat variety of the charming woodland perennial more commonly known as 'windflower'. Double, deep pink flowers are produced during autumn and which can also be used as cut flowers for fresh floral arrangements. A most rewarding plant requiring little attention for reliable performance.
Grows well in most soil types that are moist but well draining. Occasional long soaks during extended periods of heat is recommended. No pruning generally required other than to tidy old flower stems or leaves. Feed during spring with a slow release fertiliser for best results. Mulch well to retain moisture during dry periods.
Ideal for general garden use although particularly suited to cottage, woodland or wildflower style gardens. Can be grown in containers using a good quality potting mix.
Terrific solution to semi shaded areas such as beneath open canopy trees or beside walls and fences.
• Compact size ideal for containers and small gardens or spaces
• Mass plant in difficult sites such as beneath tree canopies or low light areas
• Colour and interest for shady areas
• Wildflower or cottage style gardens
