Deep beet root red leaves and incredibly vivid red flowers in mid to late summer. This is a stunning vertical accent plant in terms of both foliage and flower. This garden selection can be used as a marginal in ponds but also does very well in average garden soils. An improved form of the very popular 'Queen Victoria'.
