Plant description

This clump-forming perennial grows 2 – 3 feet tall and features upright panicles of small white to pink blush flowers in spring above a backdrop of showy maroon leaves. Deep red basal leaves and seed heads persist into winter. It grows in average, well-drained soil in full sun. An excellent pollinator plant, it attracts bees, butterflies and hummingbirds and serves as a host plant for butterflies. It is deer resistant and drought tolerant.
