LOVE this perennial. In July- September it produces electric pink 2″ long fat fluffy tassel like flowers- they fade after a few days to light pink/white for a fine multicolor effect that lasts quite a long time. The pinnate leaves are rounded and handsome and all around this long lived, cold hardy perennial is of regal quality. North Korean collection. To 30″ tall in bloom by a clump expanding to several feet wide. Rich, moisture retentive soil with regular summer irrigation. The leaves are edible and taste faintly (to me) of cucumber. Excellent perennial.
