This shorter, more compact selection is much easier to handle in container production and on retail benches. It blooms heavily and freely with dome-shaped heads of mauve pink flowers on sturdy, dark purple-red stems. An important late season pollinator plant. Great for moist to wet areas.
Grown and sold mainly for its fantastic foliage all season, this selection features serrated, creamy yellow and dark green variegated leaves that form a bushy clump. Small clusters of deep pink flowers appear late in the season; interesting cut flower/stem. Best in slightly moist soils.
Differing from the species by its shorter, more compact habit and denser inflorescenses, this perennial makes an excellent backdrop in perennial borders and wild sites where it may naturalize. Huge domes of mauve pink flowers held on wine red stems attract pollinators in droves. Introduced by: North Creek Nurseries
