28-32" tall x 15-18" wide. 'Husker Red's' combination of burgundy foliage and tall spikes of abundant white flowers make this 1996 Perennial Plant of the Year a garden standout. Many nurseries have since propagated the plant from seed (not cuttings) resulting in many 'Husker Red' plants lacking the deeply colored leaves of the original. Not so from us. Our plants are grown from breeder Dale Lindgren's original stock.
