– Willow Herb or Rose Bay.
3 to 5 feet.
Flowers rose, in July. Also a white variety.
The best known variety, E. angustifolium, is
a native wild plant in Britain, and may often
be seen making a splendid patch of colour in woodland
corners, and by river-banks. Though hardly suitable
for the herbaceous border, it is well worth a
place in all “wild gardens”. It does
best in moist spots, and any one who has a pond
or stream surrounded by waste ground, should plant
both the pink and the white variety. Roots should
be put in from October to March; they will, if
the ground suits them, want little attention,
and they will stand a good deal of shade from
