Quick Overview:

One of the most floriferous varieties of the Barista collection! Intense rosy pink flowers are produced on well-defined panicles most of the summer. Before it comes into bloom, enjoy the dark green, shiny leaves on red stems.

Description

Best grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun. Does well in loamy, clay soils with good drainage. Benefits from a slow release fertilizer. Overly fertile soils tend to produce lush foliage growth at the expense of flowering with somewhat increased susceptibility to winter injury. Water roots deeply, particularly in dry spells, but avoid wetting the foliage.  (Courtesy of Missouri Botanical Garden Plant Finder)
