Simplicifolia ‘Sprite’ has pink-peach, graceful, arching plumes. Deep, rich green foliage is finely dissected, and crinkly-edged. ‘Sprite’ is a dwarf variety which features a foliage mound to only 10″ tall and it is defiantly an eye catcher. Open, airy panicles of star-like flowers are followed by rust-colored, ornamental seed heads which provide a few additional months of interest. Slower grower but definitely worth the wait! This perennial thrives in moist, shady locations and is popular for border plantings or alongside water areas.
Perennial Plant of the Year 1994!
