This beautiful perennial forms a robust clump of lacy, deep blue-green, waxy foliage with red highlights. Foliage displays some burgundy fall color.
Red stems carry panicles of deep salmon red buds which open to soft apricot pink flowers in early summer. Deep red seed panicles extend the season of interest through summer.
