Whenever and wherever I see this plant I always think of my twin brother.. we have similar tastes in plants and certainly both love the colours in this herbaceous perennial. Coming up unfailingly each year with renewed vigour and charismatic charm. The leaflets are fine and delicately serrated with beautiful acid green to pink tones, gorgeous in the front of a border with a dark backdrop. Why not play with colour and plant with contrasting coloured plants to really brighten up your border. A possible companion plant would be Heuchera ‘Binoche’ a real dark beauty which brings a little drama to any planting scheme and really kicks out the colours of the Sorbaria leaves.
