You either love or hate this plant. I like it when it is small and only a few years old. When it is very old the rhizomes are large I find it takes up too much space and tends to get straggly. This can easily be remedied by digging up and replanting. There are various colours, but the original red with yellow top version is best I think. It stands out in the border and look like red hot pokers with strap leaves.
