This villosa hybrid, part of the Carnival series, known for their tidy mounding habit and excellent heat and humidity tolerance, is a terrific choice for adding a touch of colour towards the front of a border. The large, ruffled leaves are deep purple with silver highlights and mauve undersides. Sprays of small flowers appear in summer. Protect from hot afternoon sun to prevent leaf scorch. Remove any winter-burned leaves in the spring, otherwise no pruning is required.
Prefers full sun/ partial shade
