(=‘Leuchtfunk’) Maiden Pinks are easy-care perennials, ideal for the beginning gardener. Plants form a low, spreading mound of bronzy evergreen leaves, studded with bright ruby-red flowers in late spring, then on and off through the summer. Trim back lightly after first flowering. Good choice for poor soils, and hot, sunny sites. Also excellent in tubs and mixed containers. Plants are easily divided in early spring or fall.
