This is definitely my plant of this week – having spotted it bulk planted in a large border within view of the Cutty Sark in Greenwich. A fantastic plant for pollinators – bees were all over them when I took this photo in mid-July. These plants would look wonderful inter-planted within a perennial border with grasses.
