These are seedlings from a collection we made in Virginia that have exceptionally dark veining in their leaves and maintain that veining throughout the season. There is variation in the pattern of the veining but we have selected only the darkest. In our gardens, we grow this plant in a woodland area that has dappled light in the morning, but shade in the afternoon. The bloom spikes are about 15 inches tall with panicles of tiny flowers that are not remarkable in color but en masse create a pointilist effect.

Early summer.  7-8 in. x 15 in.

Brownish Green flowers

Part Shade, Shade     Zones 4, 5, 6, 7, 8
