Gardeners' Notes:

So far this spring, this plant has been blooming for 6 weeks in my garden. The leaves offer great contrast against solid color blue or green hostas.

I love this plant! I have it planted in a very shady area and it is so striking from afar and up close. The leaves almost glow in the dim light. The foliage is the best part, I think, but it also has beautiful purple flowers in the spring that make it all the better. Needs almost no maintenance other than not letting it get overly dry in the summer.

This plant thrives happily in my full-shade garden with highly acidic (5.1) soil. It has lush foliage that seems to glow and makes a great silvery accent. Unlike ferns, it doesn't mind our soggy springs, hot (100F), humid summers, or even an occasional drought. It's also one of the last plants to disappear in the winter (snow won't zap it, but reallly cold weather will), and then one of the very first to return in the spring. I'm a fan :)

Neutral Gabrielle On Feb 6, 2006, Gabrielle from (Zone 5a) wrote:

Violet-blue flowers over large silver-sheened apple green leaves that are wider than other longifolias. Vigorous, multi-crowned 12" tall plants with long-lasting foliage. Do not cut back after flowering.
