Also known as ‘Black Dragon’, this is a clump forming evergreen perennial, with purple-green leaves that turn jet black when planted in full sun. With small purplish flowers in summer, followed by glossy black berries in autumn, it’s quite low maintenance and easy to grow. Being small in its size it can be lost in a border, so for best impact plant in a container or rock garden where it can be seen easily.
Grow in full sun, reliably moist, but well-drained conditions.
Mature Height: 10-30cm
