This plant has been bred for flower production as opposed to other forms which have been bred for its leaves which can be green, pink, red, purple, bronze and silver. These hybrids usually have ruffled leaves.
It has a plain green, unruffled leaf which is evergreen. Spikes of delicate bell shaped red flowersappear in spring and have a long flowering period.
Each plant grows in a neat clump 30-45cm high (12-18in) and can be used as borders or potted in a shady courtyard. They are salt and cold tolerant (USDA zones 3-8) and should be divided every 3 years in spring.
The flowers should be dead-headed to prolong flowering or may be used as a cut flower having a vase life of 5-7 days.
Offered is a packet of approx 100 seeds with Grownotes to assist you in their propagation.
