Aptly named, this selection produces large clusters of luscious strawberry red flowers with a gold center, just like the seeds on a real strawberry. A uniform blossom height results in the flowers being produced in a domed canopy atop a full, sturdy, upright clump of grey-green foliage.
Members of the Seduction Series have strong, branched stems with shorter internodes, and a compact habit. Unlike older cultivars with a weaker, open habit, ‘Strawberry Seduction’ has a very robust yet compact habit. It is beautiful in the landscape.
One unique characteristic about this plant that took us by surprise in our trials is that after the red flowers are finished, when left to dry on the stems they turn a lovely shade of buff yellow. The plant literally looks like it is continuing to bloom yellow, extending its interest in the landscape much longer than other varieties.
