In spring, the deciduous, feathery, green foliage emerges and forms attractive groundcover, but it is in summer when the unusual red flowers top the slender, upright stems that it really becomes a head-turner.


Grow in a moderately fertile, moist but well-drained soil that does not dry out; best in full sun or partial shade. Usually needs support and the rhizomes can spread and become invasive so site with care
