Lovely velvety soft leaves that are irresistibly soft you just have to pick them.
This furry foliage is what I would call silver not grey and adds year round colour and appeal to the garden.
Produces tall spikes which bear purple flowers. The foliage and the flowers are both good for floral work.
It loves poor dry soils and tolerates most sites, but is a good plant for the dryer patch in your garden.
