Blackberry Ice' is a vigorous grower that forms a full, rounded clump of attractive foliage that stays nice all season long. The newest leaves are a remarkable iridescent purple with black veining and have amethyst purple undersides. As the leaves mature, they develop a softly luminescent pewter overlay. Reddish-purple scapes rise above foliage in midsummer carrying clouds of small creamy white flowers. 'Blackberry Ice' thrives in sun or shade and will be a garden thriller massed or a container focal point when used in a mixed planter
Deadheading won't keep them blooming longer. However, removing the flower stems once the plant has finished blooming will keep them looking tidier. Plants can be divided in spring or fall for personal use.
An application of fertilizer or compost on garden beds and regular fertilization of plants in pots will help ensure the best possible performance.
