Shiny, crinkly textured, scalloped, broad leaves in the deepest shades of purple characterize this cultivar. Contrasting vivid violet flowers really pop against this dark backdrop. One of the first perennials to draw bees into the garden. An easy to grow, durable groundcover; great for weed and erosion control.

Small, narrow, chocolate colored leaves form a low growing, weed-suppressing mat. Deepest coloration is produced in higher light levels. Can be used in place of turf in shady spots; tolerates light foot traffic. Bright violet blue flower spikes appear in spring, drawing in bees and other pollinators.
