Bed D: Plant 06

(Black Steel series)

A recently introduced cultivar that produces the much-loved flower clusters throughout summer and autumn, but these are carried on lustrous, near-black stems.  This gives the plant a unique and attractive twist. The flower colour can vary when grown on acidic soils, but generally the deep pink flowers of ‘Zambia’ appear a lime green colour when they are first emerging, and both the young and more mature flowers contrast really well with its steely coloured stems.   A very welcome addition to the family.  Grows to 1m
