When it comes to tough and wooly perennials with blooms—this is a cottage garden classic. Along with Lamb's Ear (aka Stachy byzantina) and the white form of this plant (Lynchis coroner 'Alba') it can be left to do as it pleases and will need little to no irrigation. After these plants bloom, all need to be cut back. If not, they'll dry and reseed and if that's not an issue, then let them be, and move on with your summer!

Hot magenta pink isn't for everyone, but you must admit, it can become part of a striking combo if you plant it beside something unexpected. In the photos included you'll see it planted with a Cotinus coggygria or European smoketree. This combo blows me away each summer. I'm proud to have it on my street. 

Germination instructions are included with your seeds. (about 250 seeds)
