Mound shaped perennial growing 1–3 feet tall and offering a wide array of attractive foliage from silver gray to red to chartreuse yellow. Excellent for foliage interest. Flowers in early summer with tall, open flower stalks. Prefers a partial shade site with good organic matter content and good drainage that is critical to the successful over-wintering of the plant. Removing flower stalks encourages rebloom. Zones 3-8.
