A very common and much loved herbaceous plant. For some reason it had died out here (actually, it had been shaded out by the trees). When I built the herbaceous border I was determined to
replace it, so rather grudgingly I went out and paid money for some young plants. A fortnight later I was scrabbling around in an old gravel bed where I just cleared some overgrowth,
and found a host of tiny seedlings, so it turns out it hadn't quite died out after all!
