Purple Queen


Even the stems of this plant are purple, with velvety purple leaves and small, light lavender flowers. These plants add striking color to the landscape and look great against any flower or foliage color. You do have to pay attention to this plant. The meandering habit can cause it to wander into places where it's not wanted. Better to confine it to a limited area and keep it in bounds (as well as full and lush) with regular edging. Once mature, the plant can act as a drift of deep purple the height of a small shrub (about a foot and a half), as groundcover surrounding a specimen plant, or as a showy garden accent.
