Noteworthy CharacteristicsDark foliage creates a wonderful contrast with all colors in the garden. Blooms are true red.
CarePrune after flowering in late spring. Light pruning can be done throughout the year. Pruning in fall and winter reduces the flowering in spring. Ideally soil should be kept moist, but this cultivar can handle dry conditions once established.
