Superb perennials, extremely hardy and pest resistant. Flowers in early summer with impressive plume like flowers. Moist soil and some shade is preferred for best growth. Will tolerate soggy soil. Tall varieties are great in back of the border, short varieties good for accent up front. Deeply cut, fresh green leaves with red center blotches and red striping along the veins. Reddish-pink flowers.
