We grew this Chilean perennial in our gardens but lost it in a severe winter (A 10 Degree F.cold snap.). We are glad to have it back since it is such a generous bloomer. The leaves of Francoa sonchifolia are large, somewhat lance-shaped and lobed. They form an evergreen basal mound. From summer into the early fall stately, unbranched, upright flowering stems bear compact clusters of pink flowers with darker central markings. The dark pink buds are also attractive.

Summer to early autumn.  2-3 ft. x 18 in.
