'Little Angel'  is the perfect choice for those looking for a container plant or a small scale plant for the front of the border. Tiny, deep green leaves have creamy white margins that form a dense, petite clump of foliage. Bright green stems hold long, oval-shaped rosy red flower panicles – reminiscent of matchsticks – that pop out the top of the plant. This perennial has been in retail in Japan for a number of years, and is recently making a splash in the European and American markets
