Patrinia villosa - 9cm pot
A lovely Valerian relative which flowers towards the end of summer and into autumn, making an ideal compliment for the big bright displays of Asters and Rudbeckias. Clumps of softly hairy green foliage and upright stems topped with multiple loosely formed umbels of pretty white flowers. Prefers light shade or just a part day of sun. Hardy but can be short-lived so be sure to save seed - the seedheads are just as beautiful as the flowers, turning a lovely shade of pale lime green first before deepening to antique pink shades. 90-120cm H x 50cm W. 9cm pot.
