AGM. Fluffy, purplish-grey plumes of flowers are freely borne high above a mound of narrow, stiff, green leaves that turn straw coloured in late autumn. Aug-Oct. H120cm S75cm.
Best grown in a moist, well-drained soil in full sun or partial shade. Tolerant of wetter soils and good in clay. The flowers persist into winter so cut clumps to the ground in late winter just before the new shoots appear in spring. An ideal accent plant for front-middle of a border.
Macplants are central/southern Scotland's largest growers of herbaceous perennials, alpines, ferns and ornamental grasses. We have our plant centre open to the public in East Lothian, close to Edinburgh and we also supply a diverse range of trade clients both in the landscape and garden centre sectors.
We grow a large range of plants including many interesting and unusual varieties not usually seen for sale. Amongst the many plants we grow are our highly praised autumn Gentians bred here by Dr Ian McNaughton and probably the largest range of Meconopsis cultivars found anywhere.
