Fast-growing spreading perennial to 12-18″ tall x 3-4′ wide. This attractive and popular variety features a year-round display of eye-catching cascading deep-purple foliage accented with showy three-petaled purplish-pink flowers that appear in summer. Despite its lush and tropical appearance this species will tolerate a wide variety of soil conditions and will grow with a moderate watering schedule. Great as a shady-area groundcover and makes a superb hanging basket. Prefers a light shade to partial sun exposure and its deep foliage color will be most pronounced in the brightest light settings.
