'Nicolas' is an all green cultivar that colours up quickly in the summer and fall with constantly deepening shades of orange, burgundy and red. The cascading foliage resembles falling water which makes it marvelous beside a pond or tumbling out of shade borders. Try combining with darker foliage like burgundy heucheras for a WOW! effect in your shade garden. Selected by the Perennial Plant Association as Perennial Plant of the Year 2009.
