Deciduous shrub with toothed green leaves and branching, red-tinted stems that carry cone-shaped flower clusters from spring into autumn. The flowers change colour from white in spring through pink in summer before maturing to a wine-red in autumn. To obtain larger flower heads, cut back previous season’s shoots to within a few buds of the woody framework in spring.
Grow in moist but well-drained soil in full sun/part shade.
Height and spread after 2 – 3 years 1m x 1m
Mature height and spread after 4 – 5 years if not pruned 2m x 2m
