USDA Zone: 4-9

(='Verscarmine') Part of the Younique™ series, recently bred in the Netherlands by Jan Verschoor. This selection features a low mound of lacy green foliage, topped by large branching heads of fragrant, triangular, fushia-red plumes. Good for a shady position if given a rich, moist soil and regular watering. Also thrives in tubs, or mixed containers. Fertilize in April and June. Excellent for cutting. Seed heads may be removed, or left on the plant for winter interest. Will tolerate full sun, in cool summer regions.
