A profusion of oblong, catkin-like blooms resides above decorative pinnate foliage, generating interest for months. Happiest in a sunny spot where the soil stays moist, these hearty perennials offer contrasting clarity to softer, less defined forms in borders or in more naturalized plantings.
A ‘see-through’ plethora of dense, muted pink catkins with pale rose-colored stamens alight sturdy, erect branching stems above a decorative, grass-green basal clump. Beloved by butterflies, the spry, furry blooms turn a warm russet-brown as they age, while close-set, toothed pinnate foliage offers bright canary-yellow hues for autumn. Adaptable to clay soil and larger than the more well-known ‘Tanna’, this durable perennial’s easy-to-blend, long-lasting blooms can be massed near the front of the border or in a less formal venue.
Size: 18" – 2' 0" high x 18" wide.
Hardy to zone 4.
