This plant is something of a mystery; I have seen it sold under three different names. You may also find it as Eric Knobloch red form and Love Knot, but the grower that I bought them from sells them as capitata Rubra. Whatever it truly is, it's a gorgeous plant that holds its color year round and has a nice, compact shape.
