A vigourous cultivar grown for its early flowering, and long season of interest.The feathery plumes of flowers emerge deep reddish-purple, on stems to 2 metres high, before fading to buff in the autumn and remaining attractive through the winter. The arching fountain of foliage starts green, then goes through gold in the autumn before its winter rest as a mound of light brown to add interest to the winter garden. Cut back in spring before new leaves appear.
