|Excellent, fast spreading ground cover. Dark green to mottled burgundy leaves, 2 to 4 inches long, forming a rosette clump. Quickly forms a dense, lusterous mat, bearing 3- to 4-inch spikes of blueish-purple flowers from spring to early summer. Able to withstand damp, shaded soil. Burgandy to bronze foliage plants hold color best in full sun. Nice contrast with Hostas, Pachysandra and Ferns.
