Description

Fragrance and colour for shade.
Shadowed spaces are prime real estate for this award-winning perennial! Brilliant red flower spikes appear in midsummer with uncommonly pretty, red-brown foliage that changes to vibrant green after blooming is done. The dark foliage and velvety red flower plumes look amazing when paired with lighter, brighter blooms. Easy to grow and maintain.
