Dark red flowerheads with bracts that are tipped black-purple. The flowers are sterile, so do not set seed but are long lasting. Clump forming with deeply divided palmate leaves.

Reasonably fertile, moist, preferably humus-rich soil in sun or part shade. May self-seed, but resulting plants will be variable and unlikely to be true to their parents.

By division in spring.
