Quick Overview:

A beautiful mid-size, upright grower with large panicles of brilliant red blooms. The disease resistant foliage starts as maroon-red in spring and transitions into dark green. It is the perfect plant to use as a specimen or grouping in any size garden. Deadheading will encourage re-blooming into the fall.

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.
