Coming from the Himalayas these spikey little things are quite rabbit proof. Growing into a thistle like clump they send out flower stalks over the summer. The flowers go from white to pink after they have been pollinated. Named after Rene Morin the French nurseryman that produced the first plant catalogue in 1621. The leaves have a citrus scent when crushed. With glossy evergreen leaves and flowers of white and pink on the same stalk they look equally good in a cottage garden or a more urban contemporary setting. Very low maintenance just good drainage required. In the spring be careful weeding around them as the little thistles you see will be baby plants that can be carefully relocated.
