Showy panicles of fragrant flowers July with rebloom in fall. 2½'-3' tall. Divide every 3 years, provide rich moist soil with good drainage and provide good air circulation. Prevent mildew with systemic fungicide. Pinch out shoots in spring so that no more than 3 stalks remain; you will be rewarded with showier blooms. Do not allow seedings to grow as they will revert to the old magenta.
PPST P. p. 'Starfire' - One of the best reds. 2½' tall.
