Interesting foliage but flowers are not nearly as attractive as I'd hoped for. Plant stems have been breaking quite a bit which creates a lopsided look.

Compare to the North America native culver's root, this species have larger leaves and larger flower spikes that have a soft bluish purple flowers. A common name is Siberian Culver's Root. Seem to be slow to multiply compare to the native culver's root - I have it for at least two years - seem to grow well in full sun to partial shade.
