Star-like Deep ruby-red flowers on wiry dark maroon stems, from May to September. Lobed, mid-green leaves, sometimes purple tinged.

cultivation:
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.

propagation:
By division, may take some time to re-establish. Also possible from seed, but must be from a reliable source or the resulting plants may not be the true cultivar.
