Here at the nursery we love plants that give more than one season of interest.  'Lady in Black' is a great example with its deliciously dark purple dagger-like foliage that emerges in spring, developing through summer as the stems grow before masses of small white daisy flowers with rosy pink centres burst from tiny buds in autumn.

Perfect for the middle of a mixed herbaceous border combined with silver foliage and pink Symphyotrichum, it makes a great ingredient for a prairie-style planting scheme with ornamental grasses, Achillea and Echinacea.  Tough and easy to grow in a fairly fertile, free draining soil it prefers full sun but can cope with partial shade.  Bees absolutely love it.
