Purple Loosestrife / Lythrum salicaria
Purple Loosestrife is naturally found in fens, marshes and reedbeds, so is a good addition to any wet or damp soil area such as around ponds. Its spikes of bright pink flowers stand out against its green foliage. It can have multiple stems from a single root stock, and provides food for brimstone butterflies, elephant hawk moths and red-tailed bumblebees.
