    'Indian Chief' has been around for nearly 100 years, but it's no suprise that it has enjoyed enduring popularity, because its sultry colouring looks sublime when planted in a sunny border, particularly if it is teamed with shades of plum, burnt orange, yellow, dusky rose and even purple.

  • Garden care: Plant shallowly with the upper part of the rhizome sitting on the surface of the soil, incorporating a low nitrogen fertiliser in the planting hole. After planting remove the upper-most third of the leaves to protect against wind-rock. In exposed areas stake with bamboo canes in early spring. Remove the stems after flowering from the base as this will concentrate the plant's energy into producing new rhizomes. Divide and replant about every three years.
