HARDY PERENNIAL. Ht 1-1.5m.
A very curious and extraordinary plant for the back of borders. Bright green sepals, where most plants have petals and a central, almost black, cone. An unusual fresh cut flower, long-lasting in water, or use in dried arrangements. Easy to grow, quickly forming a good-sized plant with plenty of lush green foliage and always a talking point. Flowers in summer. Plant in rich, fertile soil in full sun/part shade.
