A profusion of oblong, catkin-like blooms resides above decorative pinnate foliage, generating interest for months. Happiest in a sunny spot where the soil stays moist, these hearty perennials offer contrasting clarity to the softer, less defined forms in the naturalized garden or a border.
This lofty new English introduction arose as a chance seedling at Martin Lowne’s West Acre Gardens. Soaring far beyond a refined substantial green clump of 15 toothed, somewhat oblong pinnate leaflets, the sturdy self-supporting stalks plus loosely arranged branched stems host countless plump wine-hued blooms heightened by deep plum shades. Tailor-made for cut arrangements, ‘Martin’s Mulberry’s dense full-toned blooms and willowy visage can be threaded amongst bedfellows like Cephalaria gigantea, Aster ‘Violetta’ and Molinia ‘Skyracer’.
Size: 5' 0" – 6' 0" high x 2' 0" – 2-1/2' wide.
Hardy to zone 4.
