    Spikes of star-shaped pink flowers on tall stems in mid- and late-summer above deeply divided copper-tinted dark green leaves. This bold foliage plant is perfect for the moist but not waterlogged margins of a pond or stream. Resist the urge to remove the faded flower-spikes since both the seed-heads and foliage look wonderful frosted in the winter garden.

  • Garden care: Add lots of well-rotted leaf mould when planting. Protect the young foliage against slug damage using beer traps or environmentally friendly slug pellets. Lift and divide congested colonies in early spring.
