Pink parasol has stunning, large, deep purplish-pink blooms, with contrasting orange cones standing proudly above strong stems.
Each bloom can reach 7-10cm (3-4in) in diameter compared to other varieties only reaching a diameter of 5-7cm (2-3in).
Once established, bushy plants produce clusters of stems adding height to your borders, attracting butterflies and beneficial insects to your garden, as well as making dramatic long lasting cut flowers.
