Better, we think, than Mystica or, indeed, the famous Husker's Red, the semi-evergreen leaves of this more recent variety have a reliable dark reddish purple colouring which attractively sets off the sprays of pale pinky lavender tubular flowers that appear on tall stems through the summer. And we love the evocative name. Sun or semi-shade. Any reasonable soil. 36 in. 9cm pot.
