Spires of dark red blooms appear above crimped, blue-grey foliage from summer through to autumn. A lovely, compact burnet, introduced from Japan, spreads slowly to form a 40cm wide mass. Though the flowers are stunning, this plant is often grown just for its interesting and attractive foliage. Excellent when combined with other textural plants, such as Hakenokhloa macra, Helleborus corsicus and Deschampsis cespitosa 'Goldtau'. An ideal plant for smaller gardens as it is more compact than other burnets and is happiest in a sunny spot where the soil stays moist.
Plant height is 10cm and grown in a 2L pot and will grow to around 30cm and 50cm spread. They die back over the winter.
