This is a spreading herbaceous perennial, that dies down over winter. Masses of tubular pink flowers over drought resistant foliage for many weeks in late summer.
Epilobium have long been known as Zauschneria and they provide a fabulous splash of colour in later summer, through into autumn. They take a year or two to get established but then perform heroically. We may not have hummingbirds to feed on them, but the bees certainly appreciate the nectar.
