This lovely variety has two things going for it over the standard purpurea type. Firstly it is larger flowered, and secondly, unlike the normal purpurea, the petals are upward facing – the effect of which is to show more of the stunning rosy-purple colour. Painstakingly selected from just one plant that showed this much improved flower form, Bravado is the result. Flowers April-July. RHS Perfect For Pollinators. Height 90-105cm (3-3½'). HP - Hardy perennial.
