  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: poor to moderately fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June to August
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Ravishing, rich raspberry red flowers with deep velvet red centres from June to August and hairy, strawberry-like leaves. This red cinquefoil is a fabulous, long flowering plant for a sunny herbaceous or cottage style border. One of the most attractive varieties currently available, for maximum success chose a site that doesn't get waterlogged in winter.

  • Garden care: Lift and divide large clumps in autumn or spring. Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted compost or manure around the base of the plant in spring
