This small to medium-sized, tough perennial is unique and sought after, not just for its flowering but also for its special leaf form. The beautifully shaped greyish leaves contain numerous ‘spots and dots’, with even more on the underside than the upper surface. Established plants can put on an amazing show of red-to-yellow, bi-coloured flowers from early autumn and through winter.
