Description

Tough, durable, and attractive, 'Neon Flash' catches your eye throughout the growing season with deep green foliage that has just a hint of burgundy lining the leaf edge, profuse heads of electric pinkish-red flowers in early to mid-summer, and outstanding burgundy-red fall foliage. Prune after the first flush of blooms for good repeat bloom.
