Product Description

This new cultivar has become an instant sucess. In early spring the vigorous, plum-coloured shoots push through the soil, producing delicate ferny foliage that matures to a glorious, dark grey-green. This is closely followed by arching stems that carry elegant, scarlet-red, heart shaped flowers. It is one of the earliest perennials into flower, but the foliage does start to die back after flowering, so it is best mixed amongst summer flowers, which can then maintain interest in the border.Size 1L
