These amazing perennials, commonly known as False Goats Beard, produce spectacular feathery plumes surrounded by dense fern like foliage from June to August. They are very tolerant of shade and thrive in damp locations, so are ideal for placing near a pond but equally are impressive in containers or as part of a border display. They're highly fragrant, and their pleasant aroma will attract plenty of bees and butterflies to the garden. Height 60cm. The collection is one each of Pink, Lilac, White and Red. First grade loose plants supplied.
