Description

Height x Spread: 90cm x 60cm

Rather unusually the small pale pink flowers that make up the domed heads of this striking herbaceous perennial bloom before its large green umbrella shaped leaves emerge.  Further interest is delivered when the bold foliage then turns purple in autumn.

Needing a moist to wet soil to thrive, it is a perfect choice for a bog garden, making striking combinations with the delicately leafed Astilbe, bold Rodgersia and colourful Trollius 'Dancing Flame'.  It grows best in sun but can tolerate some light shade.
