Plant details

From mid to late summer, this cultivar produces flat heads of crimson-pink flowers. A deciduous, rounded, compact shrub with foliage that is bronze-red when young, often margined with creamy white. The leaves mature to green. Cut back to a low framework in early spring each year to encourage flowering and a good shape. The Royal Horticultural Society has given this plant its prestigious award of Garden Merit.
