Little care is needed, but may be trimmed in spring if necessary.
This is a showy selection of our native species. Burgundy-black new growth in spring turns dark green in summer, and purple in fall. The yellow summer flowers support pollinator populations. One of the few plants to tolerate dry shade, this is an adaptable, durable choice for landscapes. Color will be more pronounced in sun or part shade.
