Petasites japonicus 'Purpureus'   (Purple Japanese Coltsfoot)

Zone: 6 - 9
Natural Range: Japan
Soil:  Moist - wet, humus rich
Light:  Part shade

Attributes:  Deciduous, 12” - 24" tall.  Strange frilly blooms late in the winter, often while there is still snow and frost.  Round foliage emerges in the spring, and lasts until fall.

Notes:  This form has purple - burgundy foliage and stems.  As the season progresses the top of the foliage darkens to green.  Give them plenty of room to grow.  They do well with lots of bright light, but shade them from the hottest part of the day.  They may wilt in a too hot of a spot but if their roots are kept moist they will bounce up once the day has cooled.  

Companion plants:  Gunnera, Rodgersia, Hedychium, Darmera, Musa, Persicaria, Petasites
