A blast of shades and bristles
Each year I look forward to this plant’s summer flowering. It spreads and moves like crazy filling in the gaps between the taller guys, so you’re never quite sure where it’s going to be until you see its leaves each spring. It is hardy and stands firm in most weathers, giving fun for the bees and an eye-catching mix of colour, eventually drying into a dark fawn bottle brush appearance at the end of autumn.
