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


  • Position: full light (with shade from hot sun)
  • Soil: well-drained
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: May to September
  • Hardiness: frost hardy (may need winter protection)

    Compact free branching plants are covered in masses of bright red, almost flourescent flowers during the summer and well into autumn. A high performance plant, it will put on a dazzling display in pots or at the front of a sunny border.

  • Garden care: To prolong flowering remove the flower spikes as soon they start to fade. Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant in spring.
