'Chocolate Ruffles' really lives up to its name, it has ruffled, chocolate coloured foliage with a purple under-leaf all year round.
H.'Obsidian's glossy, lobed leaves are deep purple, almost black. It has a clump-forming habit, creating a low mound of foliage. Sprays of small cream flowers appear during summer.
We think 'Plum Pudding' is one of the best with dusky reddish-plum leaves frosted with silver and masses of slender dark reddish-blue stems carrying small creamy flowers in summer.
'White marble' lives up to its name, it's lobed green foliage is overlaid with beautiful silver marbling. This clump-forming perennial has outstanding ivory blooms during the summer.
