A deciduous shrub, 3 or 4 m tall, with large, frothy, pink-tinged conical flower-heads at the tips of flexible branches in late summer. Other cultivars are similar, but with stiffer, more open flower-heads; e.g. ‘Tardiva’, the earlier flowering ‘Praecox’ and the darker ‘Pink Diamond’. Moist, humusy soil in sun.
