Great big, bright cherry-pink bells are borne on erect stems beginning in early summer; reliably reblooms through late summer if deadheaded. The bell-shaped flowers have reddish-purple spots inside. Forms compact rosettes of soft green, ovate toothed leaves. Habit is strongly upright, but tends to spread more than other punctatas; divide every other year to prevent invasiveness.

Growing & Maintenance Tips:

Keep the soil moist but make sure it is well-drained. Members of this group will grow in either full sun or partial shade, though some shade is recommended in areas with very hot summers. The delicate flower colors are best preserved with some shade. Taller varieties may require staking. Cutting the plants back hard after flowering will keep them more compact and will help to prevent self-seeding. This action may also result in a second flush of blooms.
