Plant details

Vicar's Mead' is a choice variety of this fairly common herb found in damp places in woods and meadows. It was selected for the deep purple colour of its leaves and stems. Its large, mound-shaped flowers are pink-tinged at first, becoming white. Plants bloom from June to September and make an eye-catching addition to wilder parts of the garden.
