A unique and improved variety of the original plant species, this variety can be planted in a range of soil and light conditions. Adding Hillside Black Beauty to a perennial garden brings in dark tones and allows other, bright-colored plants to pop against it. Playing with the fine, fern-like leaf texture of this plant against broadleaf shade tolerant perennials creates a happy balance. Choose a location with moist, well-drained soil and partial shade to allow this plant to thrive.
Hillside Black Beauty makes a great perennial addition but isn’t limited to just that. Use outdoor pots and containers as the “thriller”.
