Preferring boggy and damp conditions, this striking perennial will enhance any pool, pond or stream side. The small pale pink clusters of flowers that arise before the leaves in spring, extend and darken as the leaves emerge, creating an entirely new floral display later in the season. The rounded, deeply lobed dark green leaves turn red in autumn. Height and spread is 3-4 feet.
Sow seed in containers in spring or autumn. Grow on in moist to damp garden soil. For maximum freshness, please keep seed refrigerated in its original packaging until it is time to plant.
