A lovely meadow flower that's at its best in a diverse group planting, especially mixed with grasses. Produces large pale purple/pink flowers up to 5" across (June to July) with very narrow drooping or dangling petals, giving it a unique attractive look. Seedheads are conelike and persist at the top of the stem over semi-evergreen basal leaves. Tolerant of drought and clay, but prefers well-drained conditions. Seeds are a favorite of goldfinches, nd the flowers attract butterflies and other pollinators.
