This plant is my find of the year. I was attracted to it as it was billed as being a favourite with bees and butterflies, has pineapple scented leaves and is drought tolerant.

The seeds were sown in late March and germinated within a week. The plants have been flowering non-stop since early August and are is still covered with blooms now. It has met all expectations and more. It hasn't been bothered by slugs and snails nor does it seem to suffer from powdery mildew unlike similar looking plants such as Asters.

I gather it is a short lived perennial but I've saved some seeds for next year just in case. I'm growing it in my sunny border but I think it would look equally good in a large container.
