Plant in a location with rich soils and good drainage. Since it is evergreen, leaves may look tattered in early spring — just give them a sheering and new leaves will fill in quickly.

Grows to height/width

New color for the PRIMO series, with bright, rosy purple leaves and deep, charcoal gray veining. Dark burgundy-rose flower scapes hold rosy pink flowers.

‘Wild Rose’ will do well in both the garden and in containers. Display with ‘Black Pearl’ and ‘Pretty Pistachio’ for a full color impact. Great for perennial combination containers.
