These large 48″ tall plants bring dark, vibrant color to gardens. For a striking combination try planting with yellow leafed plants such as Creeping Jenny. Easy to grow as long as soil is well drained.
Makes a stunning addition to cottage, perennial and pollinator gardens.
Plant in full sun in well draining soil. Add compost and other organic matter when planting. Adding a starter fertilizer at planting will get your plants off to a fast start. Keep well watered especially when plants are setting up buds and blooming, and during dry spells.
