While you'll be immediately attracted to the outstanding foliage color of this little known selection, you'll be thrilled by its amazing ability to grow and thrive in almost any sunny or partially shaded situation. Its foliage is three or four-leaved, dark purple-black with a green margin and looks like Clover except you've never seen Clover with this kind of color! Small white flowers appear briefly in early summer but the real wow factor for this plant is its foliage that looks good from spring thru fall, especially with a hard prune in midsummer to rejuvenate the foliage. It makes a very nice filler plant in tubs or mixed containers and, because it is a vigorous grower, you need to give it plenty of room and not grow it next to slower growing plants that it might overgrow. Black-leafed Clover can also be used as a lawn substitute and mowed to the desired height.
