Reviewed 18th July 2018 by Ruth Foggin

Discovered by accident when given as present and now have three planted in semi shade. Lovely bronze/green/burgundy leaves with tall arching stems bearing delicate small flowers. Looks very nice with heuchera, astrantia, ajuga and with Acer palmatun ‘butterflies’.
