Product Information

Star-like flowers sit like a haze above a bed of straight stems, gathering in clusters on an easy-to-grow and no fuss perennial, a perfect solution for impressive flowering might!

Peachy pink outstretched tubes with darker eyes decorate strappy stemmed foliage from as early as April, a welcome zap of colour before many other summer-flowering bloomers have time to emerge.

What’s more, if you crush the foliage by hand, it will release an encapsulating onion-like aroma, bringing an extra dimension of pleasure to the summer garden. The flowers are even attractive to pollinators.

So versatile, ‘Purple Eye’ grasps the attention whether in a free-draining border or a patio pot. The blooms even look exceptional when snipped and included in a fresh cut flower display for the mantlepiece or windowsill.

Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, for stunning displays for many years to come.

Supplied as an established plant in a 9cm pot, ready for planting.

Top Tips

Water 'Purple Eye' freely while actively growing, but try to keep it almost completely dry when it falls dormant for winter.

Care Information

  • Dig a planting hole three times the width of the roots you're planting and mix some well-rotted compost or manure with the soil from the hole and use this to re-fill once in place.
  • We've found that a square hole is better than a round one as the new roots, once they reach the edges tend to grow in a circle round the circumference of the hole whereas when they reach the corners of a square hole, they find it easier to grow through.
  • Before planting, soak container-grown plants thoroughly and allow them to drain.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots. Add Mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help plants establish quicker.
  • Place in the hole at the same level as it was in the supplied nursery pot and refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling).
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball and water well.
  • Mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc.
  • If you're planting into pots, place some old rocks, stones or gravel in the bottom of the pot for drainage and ballast.
  • Use the best compost you can buy and some sand or grit for drainage.
