Polished waxy dark green; oval to heart.
Another wonderful garden plant that is rarely seen. The leaves are long-pointed glossy green ovals about 2" long, spreading out nearly flat. It is highly stoloniferous, forming nice colonies of a small-scale groundcover. The flowers are dark purple bells, blooming from deep violet buds, only a few per scape but gracefully nodding. This is the real thing from wild Japanese stock.
