Design IdeasThis high contrast purple red foliage is exceptional for shaded mixed borders that tend to be all too green in color. Use in small irregular groups for the woodland garden or naturalistic settings. In more formal settings use as a mass focal point or as linear edging. It is excellent in front where plants are viewed up close for both foliage and flowers. Good plant for nestling landscape boulders or to round the base of pedestal or fountain. Excellent candidate for pots and troughs, even north facing window boxes as foliage accent or delicate flower spikes.
