Lacy, light green foliage is held on vividly-contrasting red-violet stems. A highly ornamental variety that combines well with bold-leaved plants in the shade. Super addition to woodland and wild gardens that need interest and color. Naturalizes under tree canopies both deciduous and evergreen where conditions are right. Herbaceous fern. Partial to full shade. Moderate growth and slow spread to 3 feet tall and as wide.
