Soft mauve flowers with deeply lobed, mid-green leaves that are white underneath. A bit of a spreader, but useful for filling the front of a border especially as the leaves look interesting throughout the growing season. As tough as boots.

Care advice

Easy to grow in a well-drained soil, in sun or partial shade. Remove stems and leaves when they die back to encourage more flowers and leaves. May suffer from mildew in warm summers, if so remove the leaves to promote fresh growth.
