Height x Spread: 40cm x 60cm

Clusters of cerise pink flowers are held on red knee high stems above rounded undulating leathery leaves in late winter to spring. Deadhead faded flower spikes and remove damaged leaves in spring.

This tough evergreen perennial from Siberia is very useful as robust edge planting for paths or for providing fast growing ground cover. This plant prefers a humus-rich soil which is damp but has good drainage, but will also tolerate poor soil if not too hot and dry. Best in sun or part shade.
