  • Blooms energize the late summer garden
Like the perfect mix between a lily pad and an elephant ear, these big, shiny leaves bring fabulous tropical flair to your landscape. And the color. Dark chocolate, green and maroon hues all swirl together on this foliage, and contrast brilliantly with the bright blooms. Those late summer blooms will light up a shaded spot, which is useful in landscaping as many flowering plants have already finished their seasons. If you've got a boggy, marshy garden, this is your perennial. It needs constant moisture, so it thrives in cool, wet areas that would spell disaster for other shade plants.
