Medicinal uses - antispasmodic, diuretic, sedative, and tonic.

In the Spring, as the foliage emerges, the edges are trimmed with a the dark, brownish purple color that is just stunning. That edging gets darker and more pronounced as the growing season progresses. In late Spring and early Summer, 1"-2" dark lavender flowers appear. After the flowers are pollinated, the seed heads are attractive as well as they age to a soft, chestnut brown color.
