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 an excellent foil for the finger-length flowers. Earlier to flower than other Sanguisorbas, this looks particularly lovely 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.
