Interestingly this plant is otherwise known as 'Purple Loosestrife' and 'Cannon Went'. I wonder if this is to do with the fact that it tends to seed freely, which in a naturalistic planting scheme, mixed border or gravel garden is very desirable as the 100-150cm.tall, slender spikes of jewel purple, tiny flowers are not dis-similar to multiple purple exclamation marks in amongst the other plants, added to which is the fact that these 'easy to remove if unwanted' additional plants are all free! Buy one, get 50 free! It does prefer moisture wherever it grows


Available as a 1L plant.
