Dark, bronzy purple, nearly black, foliage has a lacy texture that looks amazing set against lime green hostas or astilbe. Fragrant bottlebrush flowers start blooming in late summer and their rich pink color ages to a pleasing white. The height of this pernnial is a real bonus in the shaded garden where it reaches higher then most hosta's or astilbes, creating an airy backdrop for the wooded garden.
