Topping a tidy, low-growing bluish grey-green mound of deeply lobed, attractive foliage, the enticing cup-shaped flowers are distinctively coloured in purplish-red hues accentuated by a close network of darker veins that converge towards a dark central eye. The bountiful blooms keep coming all summer long, and there’s an autumn encore when leaves take on shades of purple, red or orange.
