A Fantastic Foliage™ and a Hot Summer Survivors selection!

This dark purple-leafed accent plant is ideal for mixed containers, as a “solo” hanging basket or planter variety, and as a groundcover in the landscape. Purple Lady makes a low and prostrate, spreading plant that fills in nicely and cascades
as the branches get longer and heavier. Ideally suited to partial sun/partial shade conditions, Purple Lady can withstand more sun in humid areas like Florida.
Well-suited to 4 to 4.5-in. (10 to 11-cm) pots and hanging baskets.
