Description

Flowers: June-August.  Plant in moist part shade.  HxS 60x60cm

An outstanding recent hybrid, which rapidly sells out every time we stock it or take it to a Plant Fair.  We have now bulked up enough that we are able to relist it.  There is excellent contrast between the bright blood-red flowers, which open from even darker red buds, and the ferny dark green foliage which is red when it emerges in spring.  This is the perfect plant for ‘lifting’ a shady area.  Deadheading does not increase blooming so leave the old seedheads on for additional winter interest, particularly after frost.  Slightly fragrant and cuts well for a vase.

Care & Maintenance.

Cut down old foliage early in the spring.  Spring is also the best time to divide the plants.
