This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: moist, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June to September
  • Hardiness: frost hardy

    Dark claret flowers are produced throughout summer and into autumn above feathery, green foliage. A vigorous, ground-hugging perennial for a sunny spot, which looks lovely in a 'hot' border. It associates really well with yellow and orange flowering plants, such as Crocosmia 'George Davison' and Dahlia 'Arabian Night'. It also looks lovely planted in pots on a sunny patio.

  • Garden care: Protect plants in winter with a dry winter mulch around the crown.
