One of the highlights of mid-summer is viewing Angel's fishing rod in full flower. Resembling a fishing rod, long, aching spikes rise above the grass-like leaves, each one drooping under the weight of pendular pink bells. To get the full benefit of this trouble free plant, grow it in a sheltered spot in full sun.

I have this growing in a gravel bed with grasses and it is beautiful. Well worth growing. My only criticism is that once it has flowered it does look very untidy. I stake it and use garden twine to support the long strappy leaves.
