Description

A vigorous sport with all the famous assets of ‘Purple Dome’ – tough, compact, disease-resistant and heavy-blooming — in a bright new color for the Autumn garden. Hot raspberry-pink starry flowers completely cover foliage. Vernalization is not required for flowering. Like ‘Purple Dome’, and unlike most of its species, ‘Vibrant Dome’ needs no cutback for height control. Compact mounds of attractive dark green, lance-shaped foliage. Comes to Must Have Perennials from Bobbie Schwartz, Ohio (USA).
