A hardy, herbaceous perennial. The sepals are arched and slightly irregularly arranged over the petals and have a charming, slightly flicked up appearance. They are richly suffused with purple flecks. The petals are ruby pink with paler spurs, which sits very nicely with the bronzy new leaves. These are extended heart shape with orangey-bronze stems. The mature foliage is evergreen, serrated and spiny, becoming flushed with orange, particularly around the margins in cold weather. Flowering period: March – May. Height 15- 30cm. Spread 15-30cm. Plant requires partial shade in moist well drained soil.
All our plants are grown in pots to reduce the risk of pest and disease. At certain times of the year our perennials are potted up into larger containers as and when the plants need. This means that plant can have a root system that is between 0.5L and 1.4L during this period.
