Looking for a pink flower about 2 and a bit high. To flower now. With a shrubby Type habit like a penstemon. Must be hardy in Scotland. Preferably long flowering period. To sit next to orange geums blue phlox red penstemon Purple salvia. 

Any ideas?

    What about one of the smaller Lythrums ? They are flowering now with nice dark-pink spikes.

    Hi hogweed. How about Monarda, Pink Chrysanthemum (hardy type), Achillea to name but three.

    Francoa has been a lot around these days. Liatris, shrub aster (Felicia).

    Both plants are quite long flowering and may suit your situation.

    Physostegia Virginiana 'Bouquet Rose', obedient plant. Agastache Arcado Pink, giant hyssop.

    How about a sidalcea. I bought one in the spring and I'm thrilled with it, so pretty.
