Shimmering plum-purple foliage with metallic silver highlights creates a tight mound and excellent contrast for its sprays of tiny white flowers and for variegated, silver and golden foliage plants. Ideal in rock gardens or mixed containers in bright to dappled shade. 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.
