Clumps of narrow, deep green leaves and slender, arching stems bearing metallic bronze flower panicles from early summer, they turn buff with age. Average soil in sun or light shade. 1m.
Excellent for mixing with perennials for the Naturalistic or New Wave style of planting. Looks great with things like Digitalis ferruginea and Astilbe 'Purpurlanze' and works well as a foil for many larger hardy geraniums.
