Design Ideas: This is one of the stellar perennials of the highbrow border and semiformal gardens. A superior choice for high profile foundation beds adding foliage interest even when not in bloom. Blends perfectly into the semi-shaded mixed border, providing strong color through summer. Mass or naturalize in woodland gardens. Also at home in country garden settings with hedges and cottage style flowers in informal drifts and masses. Exploit unique coloring with exotic container plant combinations.

Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. For a neat appearance, remove old foliage before new leaves emerge. Divide clumps every 2 to 3 years in early spring.
