Much like the species, this variety also grows quickly to form a robust clump of deep green foliage topped with arching flower stems in late spring. When the foliage is emerging in spring, it has a tinge of pretty purple color to it. The flower stems on this variety are deep red and the large, puffy heart-shaped flowers are bright red with a white tip. They dangle romantically from the leafless stems over a period of many weeks. The plant remains attractive after it is finished blooming until it goes summer dormant. In cooler climates with adequate moisture, the bloom time may be extended into early summer.

Care: Requires evenly moist soil with lots of organic content to enhance the water retention. Plant in a protected location with little or no direct sun. Goes dormant after blooming in most areas outside the far north (regular water will delay dormancy). Protect from late spring frosts.
