A rare offering of this impressive species which will merit pride of place in your garden.  This will make a fine rosette of hairy, divided evergreen leaves for the first 2-3 years after which a stout flowering stem will arise decked out with plenty of crepe-paper purplish flowers.  After this exuberance, the plant expires but leaves you with plenty of seed.  Now you can have a proper drift!  Moist, acid soil with plenty of compost in morning sun or light to part shade.
