- Attractive to honey bees and bumblebees
- Masses of flowers on tall spikes
- Seeds happily from one year to the next
Plant this biennial flower with tall spikes studded with yellow flowers up in containers, wall-side beds or scattered throughout your flower borders all around your garden so bumble bees and honey bees have feeding stations of pollen and nectar.
In addition to lots of flowers you are rewarded to soft and downy leaves which contrast well. Your plants are so architectural, attractive and a welcome food source to important insects.
You’ll be improving the survival chances of our most valuable UK insects that work hard to fertilise fruit and fruiting vegetables, so important to our food industry and UK biodiversity.
We recommend you place your young plants in your garden with a range of other flowering plants, tall, medium and short to cater for the flight paths of different insect species. Shake the spikes of the flower spires in autumn after flowering if you want the next generation of flowers the following year. It’s a great way of creating a sustainable, continual source of flowers.
