|This graceful, small shrub is a wonderful addition to any small garden or border. Its loose, billowy form is best used in groups and works well as a background for the perennial border. Mid to late summer flowers are dark pink. New foliage is bronze. Soil should be fertile, moist and well-drained and light should be ample (full sun or at least dappled). Pruning really is not necessary, unless to remove old or weak canes.
