RHS Award of Garden MeritHow easy is it to grow:
This has won the RHS Award of Garden Merit [1]. To win this impressive accolade the plants must have outstanding excellence for decorating a garden, be robust, not require highly specialist growing conditions or care and not be particularly susceptible to any pest or disease.

This is good for the front of a border, alpine bed, rockery, by a patio or in a tub, but it can be a little tricky and does need a soil that is well drained, so do not try if you’ve got a clay or heavy soil.
