A tall pink with small, single, magenta flowers above narrow, grassy green foliage. Hailing from the alpine meadows of central and southeast Europe with pretty pink  flowers throughout the summer, it thrives in dry, sunny sites and alkaline soils. Try it among ornamental grasses, or to bring cheery summer colour to a meadow. Deadheading regularly will help encourage more flowers.Garden care:  Incorporate lots of well-rotted manure or garden compost into the planting hole. Apply a balanced fertiliser in spring and deadhead regularly to prolong flowering.
