From forested slopes of Japan comes this dramatic grass-like plant, featuring striking, dark purple-black blades. Grows 6 to 8 inches tall and slowly spreads to around a foot wide. Spikes of small, bell-shaped, lilac colored flowers bloom in summer. Excellent small scale ground cover, edging or container plant with regular water. Can grow in full sun along the coast, hotter areas prefers light shade. Add drama and contrast with this unusual, black foliaged plant. Deer resistant.
