A superb border plant with silver- green lanceolate foliage and many spikes of claret-red, almost black florets - a highly unusual colour in perennials. May also be used in containers or as a cut flower
Probably one of the best species with silver lanceolate foliage and stems. The flower spikes contain many small white flowers, gently veined in mauve. A choice perennial from Spain, and an unusual cut flower too. Height: 60-120cm (3-4ft)
Bring some sunshine to a damp, dark problem corner or an awkward spot under a tree with this resilient perennial. A new form of an old cottage garden favourite, the striking colour of the flowers contrasts beautifully with the golden-edged foliage. Enjoy a ‘Golden Alexander’ glow all summer…
