Outstanding Qualities
Vivid magenta bell-shaped flowers rise on stout stalks in springtime. The leaves can be up to 10 inches long by 8 inches wide and, in wintertime, they are often burnished in shades of red and bronze. The beautiful glossy green, oval foliage is perfect in rockeries or amongst fine-leaved companions.
