|Lore||Native Americans used these thick roots for a medicinal by drying and then pounding them into a wound dressing, hence the common name, alum root.|
|Average Size at Maturity||Moderate growing to 12 to 18 in. tall and wide.|
|Design Ideas||This 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.

Excellent candidate for pots and troughs, even north facing window boxes as foliage accent or delicate flower spikes.|
