An invaluable foliage plant, 'Powis Castle' is unique in carrying multi-branched stems of silver filigree foliage, which acts as a superb foil to medium-sized flowering perennials such as pinks or scabious. Outstanding with pastel colours, the dense silver colour is held through the summer but is perhaps at its very best in mid summer, just right for the bulk of the season's flowers. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
