Description

This useful and ornamental plant should not be confused with the awful weed Purple Loosestrife (Lythrum salicaria)

This plant is absolutely non-invasive.
This plant forms a clump of greyish green leaves which is quite upright. The white flowers are borne on longish upright spires in summer and late summer, and are attractive to butterflies. It is a very good cut flower, which is used frequently by florists, and can be used to advantage particularly at the back of the border. It can be used to effect beside water, and is reportedly rabbit resistant.
Divide clumps in spring.
