It generally readily naturalises in any moist or moisture retentive soil.  It will do best when growing in grass and will often grow in drifts by marshy areas or by a pond or water’s edge.  It is often seen growing alongside plants such as Marsh Marigold and Meadowsweet.

It will produce an abundance of tiny dark seeds and these often rattle around in small brown capsules. Once the capsules open the seed’s are spread by the stems waving in the wind.

Flowering Season:  May to August

Height: 30 to 50 centimetres

Cultivation: It is a perennial plant.  Sow seeds into the soil in either spring or late summer.  If producing your own plugs sow the seed into a tray of compost at any time from spring until the early autumn.  The seed should only be lightly pushed into either the soil of the compost.
