This is the most wonderful plant that I hardly see anything about. It is in its 2nd summer and just blooms like crazy. As soon as one goes to seed another is forming right behind it. Nice compact mounded foliage w/beautiful dark maroon flowers on single stems that are great in a cut bouquet too, just an overall pleasure that I highly recommend!
