Description: 'Toffee Nosed' is a compact herbaceous perennial to 1m in height, with narrow leaves and erect stems each bearing a dense spike of cream flowers tipped with orange-brown.
Care: Best grown in a sandy soil that has been enriched with humus but any deep, moist but well-drained soil will do. Full sun is best; can tolerate partial shade but flowering is reduced. Propagate by division of established clumps in late spring. Propagate by taking offshoots from the crown. Old flower stems can be cut down after flowering.
