This small, easy to grow, clump-forming evergreen perennial has black grass-like
leaves. In summer, small spikes of bell-shaped, pale mauve flowers appear, followed
by spherical, dark blue fruit. This unusual plant looks fantastic with other grasses,
especially if grouped in tubs or planted into gravel or slate, and it provides a
brilliant contrast with lighter leaved plants in sun, or bright green ferns in shade.
Hardiness: fully hardy.
Position: Full sun, part shade, fertile, moist, well-drained soil
