A spectacular plant which well deserves the Award of Garden Merit given to it by the RHS. Throughout summer spikes of bright red flowers are borne from a clump of red-purple leaves (which continue up the stem). It forms a clump and is a real talking point. It prefers moist soil and can be grown in the margins of ponds.

A hardy plant which should survive normal winter conditions outside, especially with protection from the hardest frosts. If grown in pots it is recommended to place in a sheltered position for the winter.

Supplied in a 9cm square pot.
