Description

In early Spring , this plant produces bronze rosettes of foliage. In early summer the plant produces panicles of large, light lavender-pink flowers on bronze stems and the flowering continues over a long period. The flowers are complemented by deep purple foliage. In autumn, the leaves on the plant will turn to a bright red, and they will continue like this into the winter.

The plant likes well drained fertile soil, in full sun.

Deadhead spent flowers, unless seed is required. Cut plant back to base in winter. Propagate via softwood cuttings in early summer or semi-ripe stem tip cuttings in summer-autumn. Divide established clumps in spring.
