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.
An exquisite small perennial that should be grouped with others of similar stature and quality. Ideal in the front of rock gardens and perennial borders, where they will be fully appreciated. Since it blooms under some shade, it is a valuable transition plant linking shaded flowering shrubs with sun-loving ones. Take advantage of the bronze coloring by using as an edging plant or against variegated backgrounds.
