Description

Richly hued foliage keeps its colour through the summer.
A highly ornamental perennial, this new clump-forming variety features unique deep wine-red foliage—a striking colour that really causes a stir. Bicolour blooms of pale and dark pink give the plant a soft look in the sunshine. But don't let its delicate appearance fool you—this is a tough, drought-tolerant species that lures butterflies and other pollinators to the scene by the dozens. An ideal choice for borders, beds and bouquets. Perennializes well, returning yearly with ease.
