Plant in part to full shade in rich, well drained soil. The light green leaves have wide, darker green margins and are slug resistant. The color intensifies with more light. The flower is light lavender and blooms mid-July to mid-August on 38″ scapes. An excellent landscape plant. Cut off discolored leaves and spent flowers. Cut back after first frost. Use in borders, groupings, or as a groundcover. Works well with brunnera, astilbe, and ferns.
