Robust, disease resistant. I'd call the color a little more russet, it's not precisely a strawberry red. But a gorgeous cultivar with lots of personality. In my rock garden it grew about 6" taller than the "Saucy Seduction" cultivar... I would have thought they'd be closer in size. Maybe it's just my plant = ) The butterflies and moths love it.
