Grown particularly for its mound of large handsome purplish leaves, but also for the contrasting orangey -yellow daisy flowers held above the foliage. Dramatic effect in a shady spot or beside a water feature. Leaves will be green with a burgundy infusion in deep shade but in more sun leaves become more burgundy. Avoid afternoon sun as plants will likely wilt in these conditions unless kept very moist.
