Position: full sun
Soil: light, moderately-fertile, well-drained soil
Rate of growth: average Flowering period: August to September
Hardiness: fully hardy
Long-lasting spikes of deep magenta flowers appear from August to September above strap-shaped, fresh green leaves. The attractive, bottlebrush flowers open from the top downwards. This exotic-looking perennial will bring a verical accent and late summer colour to the middle of a sunny border. It makes an excellent cut flower and bees and butterflies love it, too.Garden care: Protect the young shoots from slug-damage using beer traps or environmentally-friendly slug pellets. Lift and divide congested colonies in spring, applying a mulch of well-rotted organic matter around the base of the plant.
