Small, velvety red flowers fill your garden with color for weeks. Rubra's vigorous habit
makes it a great partner for a big shrub or a fine plant to screen unsightly spots.
Although there is some confusion about its origins, Rubra may have been around since the late 1500's.
This would make it one of the oldest varieties in existence and a great addition to a garden of heirloom plants!
