Small, egg-shaped, claret-coloured flowerheads appear like drumsticks on tall, slender stems above strap-like, mid-green leaves in mid- to late summer. Planted en masse in a border in full sun, these diminutive claret flowers look great  emerging from a screen of foliage, or against a backdrop of ornamental grasses. They gently fade as summer comes to a close.Garden care: Split and divide large clumps in autumn or spring.
