Lythrum ‘ Drop­more Pur­ple’ This is a cul­ti­var of our na­tive pur­ple looses­trife which flow­ers from sum­mer to au­tumn.

If you’re out walk­ing, you may no­tice it in damp ar­eas such as boggy mead­ows or be­side streams.

The tall spikes of pink­ish pur­ple flow­ers are nec­tar- rich and at­tract bees and but­ter­flies.

Although it prefers damp­ness in the wild, it will do fine in your gar­den so long as the soil doesn’t dry out.
