Great choice as an accent, specimen, or border planting. Deep purplish-red blooms have a white center. Flowers open before the large, dark green leaves appear.
Prune in spring after the plant is done flowering.
Apply 10-10-10 fertilizer in March/April and in October/November. Also a fall application of Elements will enhance flowering.
