Fleshy greyish purple leaves on dark red stems. Dense heads of deep reddish pink buds open to small creamy yellow flowers, giving a two-tone effect, in late summer and autumn. Very attractive cultivar.

Best grown in rather poor, dryish soil in full sun. Rich soils tend to promote lush grown which causes the clumps to spread open at flowering time.
