This pretty plant is a variety of the British native Purple Loosestrife. It has the same narrow leaves on tall stems and the same impressive flowers which are attractive to insects, but the leaves are a lighter green and the blooms are a lovely soft two-tone pink. So good it has received the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit (AGM). Although naturally quite a tall plant, pruning the shoots once or twice in spring before it flowers can bring it down to a much shorter height if desired and also make it a more bushy shape.

We recommend starting your Lythrum salicaria 'Blush' off in a pot of 2 litres capacity. Read more on how to pot and care for your plant.
