A herbaceous perennial meaning in colder climates the foliage may recede during the winter months with fresh growth rising again during early spring. A 'no fuss' plant that is eye catching in mixed flower borders or grown in containers.

Cultural Care

Medium water requirements. Once established it will withstand dry conditions requiring only occasional long soaks during extended periods of heat. Prefers soils which are an open mix and therefore free draining. Deadheading prolongs flowering but once display is finished it can be cut back to basal foliage if fresh new growth is desired. Feed with slow release fertiliser during early
spring for best results.
