Heirloom variety has old-world charm.
Gorgeous, deep maroon blooms that look almost black grow singly—and quickly—on tall, stiff spikes. White eyes peer out from the centre of the bell-shaped flowers. Large, rough, heart-shaped lower leaves become progressively smaller toward the top of the spire. Great against a fence or a wall, and for hiding unsightly views.
