Description

 

Picture thanks to Jelitto .

This lovely old fashioned plant has pretty pink snapdragon shaped flowers on a compact bush with slightly grey green leaves.  It is an excellent cut flower.  It is usually a short lived perennial, but will gently self seed for you if it likes the position you have found for it. Once it has become established it can withstand some drought.  It will bloom for an extended period in cooler temperatures.
