Comments: Has fern-like foliage above which, in summer, are flower stems packed with pink, bottlebrush-like flower heads. Ornamental Brunet does not have wide use in the USA, but their ease of growth and good flowering in summer will make them a favorite. Nice in borders, containers, masses and as a cut specimen. Clumps may be divided in early spring and trimmed after flowering in summer to reduce any "ratty" growth.
