Description: Forming stunning perennial clumps of strongly upright almost bamboo-like purple bloomy stems to over 3m tall. With several opposite angled branches from shallowly cup-shaped nodes, in the upper parts. Bearing bronzy pinnate shortly hairy foliage with large lilac-pink ray flowers from July on. From a collection we found growing on the moist mountains to the east of Oaxaca southern Mexico in 2004 at over 2500m. For a sunny warm spot in moist but well drained soil, best protected from severe frost, hardy for us in a field.
