Growing/Care: When it comes to tough and wooly perennials with blooms—this is a cottage garden classic. Along with Lamb's Ear (Stachy byzantina) and the white form of this plant (Lynchis coroneria 'Alba') it can be left to do as it pleases and will need little to no irrigation. After these plants bloom, they all need to be cut back. If not, they'll dry and reseed, If that's not an issue, then let them be, and move on with your summer! You can weed out the unwanted seedlings later and keep the ones you want.
