    In the spring sword-like foliage grows, giving structure to your planting, then these amazing flowers appear in the deepest darkest purple you can imagine - almost black. Combine these plants with lime green, white or paler purples for a stunning effect.

  • Garden care: Plant shallowly with the upper part of the rhizome sitting on the surface of the soil, incorporating a low nitrogen fertiliser in the planting hole. After planting remove the uppermost third of the leaves to protect against wind-rock. In exposed areas stake with bamboo canes in early spring. Remove the stems after flowering from the base as this will concentrate the plant's energy into producing new rhizomes. Divide and replant about every three years.
  • Harmful if eaten
