Flat topped clusters of stunning white flowers are loved by bees and gardeners alike. They smother the distinctive, deep green leaves from late spring until well into the summer and add an instant cottage garden touch.


Loves to bask in a sunny spot. Ideal for the front of a border or tumbling over the edge of a raised bed, good for a rock garden too.


Happiest in any well drained soil, easy to grow but add grit or sand to the base of the planting hole of your soil is heavy and wet in winter. remove dead flowers through the summer and prune to shape in late spring when required.

Planting instructions

Water the plant in its pot thoroughly before planting – give it a good soaking. Prepare the area by digging a hole twice the size of the pot. Dig compost into the base of the hole. Remove the pot and position the plant in the hole, with the top of the rootball about level with the surrounding soil. Refill the planting hole with a mixture of garden soil and compost, firming as you go. Water in well and keep well watered during the plant's first year.
