This brilliant selection from Mt. Cuba Center will have you gasping when it emerges in early spring with its blade-like foliage aflame in shocking purple! As tolerant as the species, its best, longest foliage color show is ensured by planting with abundant moisture. A native showstopper! Blue flowers in spring.
