Clumping/Strappy – Purple blooms

I have grass like, glossy, green leaves and purple flower spikes from early summer through to autumn. I have numerous cultivars selected for their form, foliage and flower colour. I am the low growing strappy foliaged plant of choice for under plantings in shady locations. I am a great choice for borders, mass plantings and pots where my compact clumping habit and lush appearance and prolific flowering will not go unnoticed. I am tolerant of frost and dry conditions. I am long lived and low maintenance.
