It is just over a metre tall and almost as wide. Masses of pale purple flowers.
I bought it it Weymouth along with some other perennials but seem to have lost the label. I think it looks stunning and i want to know how to care for it
Many thanks

Hi Rachel, some suggestions on our social media are:

"Looks like a a purple variety of Honesty (Lunaria annua)"
"It's Hesperis matronalis."

I hope one of these is a good match?

Cheers, Nicola

It could be hesperis, if it is, it should be fragrant and form seed pods, that you can collect the seeds off and sow, it is a wonderful woodland plant.
