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: August to October
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Vibrant red flowers clothe the purple-flushed stems for several months from early summer putting on an eye-catching display in the border. Tolerant of coastal conditions and lightly dappled shade.

  • Garden care: To prolong flowering remove the flower spikes as soon as 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.
