Large, robust short-lived perennial, sometimes behaving as a biennial. Short erect stems carry rosettes of lobed, deeply divided leaves up to 60cm long with reddish-brown stalks. Showy clusters of many small flowers held on hairy stalks from late winter to late summer, pink with paler pink veins and magenta centres. Very dramatic.

Not fully frost hardy but will thrive in mild temperate areas. Moderately fertile, well drained soil in sun or part shade.

From seed.
