Short Description

A standout that never ceases to amaze.

Full Description

This was the "belle of the ball" during our Open House at Fordhook Farm. The plants available for sale were swept up in a few minutes. Emerging in spring, the handsome, purple-bronze 2 ft. stems show off bright pink tubular flowers from midsummer to midautumn. Native to the mountains of the Southeast, a superb plant for the shade or partial-sun garden. Pot Size: 4"
