A Bit More

A very useful and fast-growing perennial ground cover, this European native bears attractive purple flower stalks in spring and early summer. The deep bronze leaves are what make this species unique. It will grow to 6 inches high in the sun where the bronze color is more easily maintained and 9 inches tall in partial shade. Give regular water and make sure to prune it back as it will encroach on other plants or ground covers given the opportunity. It is not frost-tender.
