Plant is orangey red in my garden in mostly shade. Multiplies slowly, but makes a nice bold texture next to small leaved perennials. Leaves usually don't get chewed by insects.

Nice red, in Houston area we can plant it outside and leave it outside; sometimes if our winter gets cold enough it dies back completely but always comes back beautifully in spring. There is always enough to share w/ friends!

beautiful red flowers followed by upright foilage. Can be left to overwinter in a pot outdoors. Multiplies well. I have one that bloomed without any care whatsoever, was left in a bucket in the shade with no soil or water.
