‘Robert the Red’
We’ve got a major crush on charming DARK RED stemmed chap ‘Robert the Red’. Have a problem shade area? Robert’s your man. With a fast-growing, 5’ x 6’ shrub-like rounded evergreen form, he’ll provide YEAR AROUND BLOOM with lotsa large 3” rosy pink flowers that pop against deep green leaves. Excellent for weed suppression and deer resistance! Not fussy about soil (clay is cool) or root competition from trees, he’ll live forever just asking for water maybe once a week and a layer of compost annually to keep him really green. I prune mine back to 3’ in Winter for extra bushiness. A big thanks to Derick Pitman (“Mr. Impatiens”) for this stunning introduction.
