Plant details

Raised by Alan Bloom in 1960, 'Bressingham Flair' is shorter than the ordinary species and has paler coloured flowers. It blooms in early to mid-summer and has deeply cut leaves which turn vivid shades of red during autumn. For softer effects, try it with silver foliage plants, such as artemisia. For more fiery combinations, plant it next to yellows, oranges and purples.
