Dwarf Fleeceflower

This perennial forms a spreading carpet of deep green leathery foliage accented with red. At the end of the summer the leaves change in colour, bringing a bronze red hue to the garden. The flower spikes start off deeper in colour and fade to a soft pink. Relatively easy to take care of, the Dwarf Fleeceflower is showy in many locations: near water, in a rock garden, cascading over walls, or around dwarf conifers. This is one of the very longest blooming perennials and is highly recommended.
