Like the species, 'Showy Lantern' is an aggressive, strongly upright grower that is extremely easy to grow. 'Showy Lantern' flowers in mid to late May with drooping, bell shaped, pink flowers held in clusters. The flowers are considerable and showy against the background of this plant's deep green, deeply cut foliage. 'Showy Lantern' is a perfect plant for grouping along a sunny border and will deliver a tour de force fall foliage display of searing scarlet color before the leaves drop.
Thrives in partial shade. Feed yearly with an organic fertilizer. Prune in early summer to shape and control size.
