    Nodding, bell-shaped, dusky pink to dark orange red flowers on mahogany tinted stems from late spring to midsummer above rosettes of scalloped, fresh green leaves.

The seed-heads, which resemble little raspberries, are an important decorative feature, retained on the plant all summer.

  • Garden care: Lift and divide large clumps every year in early spring or late autumn.
