    Recently introduced, this deciduous shrub intially produces pink flowerheads that mature to an unusually dark pinkish red in mid- to late summer, when grown on soils with a neutral pH. Compact and bushy, it is well suited to pots and containers and the flower-heads make excellent additions to dried flower arrangements.

  • Garden care: To enhance flowering prune in spring, cut back the flowered stems to a strong pair of buds below each flower-head. Once established, remove a quarter to a third of the old shoots to the base of the plant.
