Essential element in a naturalistic 'prairie' planting scheme, 'Mammuth' reaches 1.5m in height, and will produce fluffy vivid-purple flowers in late summer, much loved by butterflies. Plant amongst tall grasses, Rudbeckia and Echinacea. Much prefers moister soils in full sun. Propagate by division in spring after 2-3 years. Fully hardy.
