Lythrum salicaria ‘Robin’ is a delightful perennial known for its tall spikes of magenta-pink flowers, making it a standout choice for UK gardens. It typically grows to a height of 60-90 cm, forming dense clumps of lance-shaped green foliage that provide a lush backdrop to its vibrant blooms.

Best planted in full sun to partial shade, ‘Robin’ thrives in moist, fertile soil. It blooms profusely from early summer to early autumn, producing tall spikes adorned with small, star-shaped flowers that are highly attractive to bees, butterflies, and other pollinators. The nectar and pollen-rich flowers provide essential food sources for these beneficial insects, making it a valuable addition to wildlife-friendly gardens.

Maintenance for ‘Robin’ is straightforward. Deadhead spent flowers regularly to prolong blooming and maintain a tidy appearance. Cut back stems after flowering to encourage new growth. Feed with a balanced fertilizer in early spring to promote healthy foliage and prolific flowering throughout the season.

Beyond its ornamental value, ‘Robin’ is prized for its wildlife benefits, attracting pollinators and contributing to biodiversity in garden settings. By planting ‘Robin’, you not only enhance your garden with its vibrant blooms and attractive foliage but also support bee populations and promote ecological balance, ensuring a thriving ecosystem in your outdoor space.
