'Chocolate Ruffles' really lives up to its name, it has ruffled, chocolate coloured foliage with a purple under-leaf all year round.
This variety forms mounds of stunning foliage, it's lobed leaves with ruffled edges range in colour, they are predominantly orange but with tinges of pink, yellow and pale green.
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.
'Greenfinch' produces masses of upright flower spikes during summer, each with a cluster of green tubular flowers. These imposing flowers are very popular with flower arrangers.
