This is a 2010 Great Plants® Perennial of the Year! A gorgeous, large perennial with wonderful lavender-purple blooms and beautiful wine red stems that develop large green leaves, it is a definite attractor of butterflies and bees but not deer! A great contrast plant with ornamental grasses, this one is not xeric, it likes to be watered similar to a blue grass lawn.
