Flowers: July-November.  Plant in light or part shade.  HxS 45x60cm

This is a lovely plant for lighting up a shady spot. The lance shaped, bright yellow-green leaves are very fresh and eye-catching in spring.  They turn greener as the season progresses and are followed in summer and autumn by spikes of dark red flowers over a long period as the foliage gradually takes on reddish autumn tints.  Makes low growing mounds of weed suppressing ground cover.  A star at RHS Cardiff 2017.  Prefers a moist soil. Pot size 1.5 litre.

Care & Maintenance.

Propagate by division in autumn or spring as divisions will root readily. Cut all old foliage to the ground in late winter.
