Must be booked by week 46 to receive vernalized material in spring of the following year.


Multiple crowns of upright foliage are tinted purplish-blue and turn to a shimmering emerald-green in the summer sun. Deep pink flowers top the plant in mid-July and shiny red seed heads extend the period of interest. This compact grower fills a gallon pot quickly and is great for mixed containers, borders, or mass plantings. Likes full sun and good drainage.
