Fluffy, vivid red, bottlebrush-like flowers are produced from late spring. The delicate, blue-grey, feathery foliage forms a neat clump and is a feature in its own right, as well as being is an excellent foil for the finger-length flowers. Earlier to flower than other Sanguisorbas, this looks particularly lovely p planted with grasses and with Penstemon Raven and Achillea millefolium Paprika, and does not like dry soil. The seed-heads retain their colour, so do not cut it down until early spring.Garden care: Cut down spent flower heads in early spring. Divide congested plants in spring or autumn.
