Red Feathers is a very interesting, architectural plant. It has straight, russet-red flower spikes from May to frost maturing to lighter shades of pink and purple. Foliage is dark green. Remove spent flower spikes to promote rebloom. Drought tolerant once established, surviving on almost total neglect. Attractive to hummingbird, bees and butterflies. A short-lived perennial so leave some flower spikes intact at the end of the season for re-seeding purposes.
