Not all plants need to be 'in your face' types. This handsome plant is rather retiring, but I use it as a filler for big borders to provide a soft backdrop for more colourful plants such as phloxes. Rather rough looking this has handsome soft green, heart-shaped leaves from which short stems with large, buff-yellow flowers striped with red appear. Easy and reliable.

Care advice

A hardy perennial, this survives temperatures to lower than -10 degrees. The foliage dies back in autumn and re-emerges in spring. Very easy to grow. Requires no special attention.
