Motherwort 'Grobbebol' is a great ornamental plant  with light red to pink whorled flowers of 6 to 12 which have a long flowering period from summer to the beginning of autumn.

Traditionally found as a medicinal plant in the cottage garden.

Fully hardy, it prefers a moist well-drained soil in sun or partial shade. The flowers produce nectar in abundance which makes them very attractive to bees, so good for a wildlife garden too. It is related to mint so care should be taken to prevent the spread of the plant if it is not wanted.
