Bronze new growth matures to vivid yellow green before acquiring copper shades in fall. Summer foliage is accentuated with masses of tiny rosy pink flowers that attract butterflies. Deadheading will encourage secondary blooming. Dense, upright, and spreading, this plant looks great in mixed beds, low borders, or in mass.
