A beautiful plant that people always ask about with dramatic purple black, lacy leaves beginning in early spring that are a perfect contrast to light greens. The plants rise in mid-spring to about three feet with umbels of tiny white flowers with pink bracts. Let Geranium 'Jolly Bee', Alchemilla mollis and Amsonia illustris and Antirrhinum braun-blanquetii swirl around it!
