An exuberant grower with attractive foliage and high, arching sprays of vividly colored, fluffy blooms. Mid-summer flush of bright magenta-pink double flowers. Many petalled, 1-inch (2.5 cm) flowers slightly resemble carnations, their distant relatives. Blooms are borne on a fountain-like eruption of flowering stems. Mounds of mid-green, lightly haired ovate leaves expand upward with flowers. Comes to Must Have Perennials from Mrs. Blake, UK.
