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

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: moderately fertile, preferably heavy but well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June to October
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    A breakthrough in breeding has resulted in this wonderful plant, which will start to flower up to 2 months earlier than its parent R. Goldsturm. First discovered by a grower in Plaquemine, Louisiana, it made its debut throughout Europe in 2011. The most intriguing thing about this variant is that it is not dependent on the length of the day to induce flowering. Therefore it is possible for it to start flowering in early summer and not finish until mid to late autumn - an impressive feat we're sure you will agree!

  • Garden care: Lift and divide congested colonies in autumn or spring. Support with ring stakes or brushwood well before the flowers appear.
