Moderate to fast-growing evergreen perennial with an upright growth-habit to 3-4’ tall and wide. This tough, heat-tolerant variety is prized for its long-blooming flower display and water-thrifty nature. Narrow, glossy, lightly-fragrant dark-green foliage is accented with a profusion of showy, raspberry-red flowers that appear at the branch tips late-spring into fall. A favorite for hummingbirds and bees. Well suited in mixed beds, borders, wildflower or native gardens, or as a colorful slope or hillside planting. Also makes a great container specimen. Performs best in fast-draining soil in a full to partial sun exposure, and while this variety requires little water once established, a more lush-looking specimen is achieved with light regular watering. Deer resistant.
