Description

This enticing shade perennial will make you want to dance with its striking blooms and unique foliage.  Starting in mid-spring, dainty light periwinkle blue flowers cover a low, mounded habit.  After the flowers fade, you can enjoy its dark green leaves that twinkle with silver.  This underused and under appreciated beauty will thrive in moist shade to part shade, adding bright spring color to even the darkest garden areas.
