Plant details

The slim arching leaves of this tough, drought-tolerant plant provides year-round interest. They start out olive green and turn bronze and copper later in the year. The leaves are particularly striking in full sun. Its architectural form makes it an ideal foil for cottage garden plants in a herbaceous border.
