Luminous foliage provides glowing backdrop for flowers
Sweet Kate's bright golden, grassy foliage will first catch your eye. Then you'll delight in the 4-5 cm wide, three-petalled, dark purple flowers that contrast beautifully with the leaves. Adding to this plant's allure is the way it attracts butterflies all summer long. Growing just 23-30 cm tall, this sun-loving, compact perennial is easy to grow and has an extended bloom time, flowering from early summer to frost. For repeat blooming, Sweet Kate Widow's Tears should be cut back after flowering. This perennial's colourful foliage and flowers are sure to enhance borders, patio containers and water gardens.
