Native species. This beautiful and striking British plant has very slender leaves which are green with a reddish base. It produces umbels of rose-pink flowers on very tall stems in summer. Very easy to grow. 

Butomus plants like plenty of room for their roots to spread as they grow, so we would suggest starting your plant off in a pot of at least 2 litres capacity. Read more here on how to pot and care for your plant.
