The brilliant deep purple foliage provides a wonderful mass of color and offsets delightful sprays of tiny, white, summer flowers. A great choice for adding color and contrast to borders when coupled with green foliage plants. Evergreen in mild winter areas; an herbaceous perennial in colder regions. Care – Provide enriched, well-drained soil; take care not to bury crown when planting. Prefers part shade in hot summer areas. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Avoid excess winter moisture. Feed throughout growing season. Remove old, faded foliage in early spring.
