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

    Flat heads of carmine pink flowers in mid and late summer and sharply toothed, dark green leaves, often with creamy-white margins. The foliage of this deciduous shrub is an attractive bronze-red when young. Ideal for a sunny, well-drained site, it makes an excellent specimen plant or colourful, informal flowering hedge.

    Garden care: Deadhead after flowering. In early spring, hard prune the flowered stems to a permanent framework 10-15cm (4-6in) above the ground.
