Interesting Facts

Is known for its unique purple and white flowers on long inflorescensces (flower stalks).  Foliage is visually interesting; tops of leaves are dark green, while stems and undersides of leaves are whitish.  Blooming period actually peaks in fall, which makes the plant an important nectar source for migrating butterflies.
