Description

The perfect addition to a cottage garden, where it will do well in a border, even in shade. It has large, deep red flowers which look like pin cushions and interesting dark green foliage. It will self-seed, so deadhead regularly in the flowering season if you’d rather it didn’t spread.

Care Tips

Deadhead regularly to prolong flowering.
