The unique, unusual growth habit and the rosy color of this Asian wildflower adds a welcome contrast in the landscape. It makes a long-lasting cut flower that has been loved in European markets for years, and is now occasionally found at local farmer's markets; but now you can enjoy it, too! Its sweet nectar lures in the butterflies.

Absolutely gorgeous

5 out of 5 stars Jul 24, 2021
These beauties were slow to grow in my garden, but only because I crowded them with other flowers. I'm in awe of how bright and beautiful the pink spikes are amidst the zinnias and love lies bleeding they're growing next to. Started from seed indoors and transplanted outside in mid-May. This will be a definite yes for my garden next year!
