This hardy sage plays very nicely in our shade garden. Its distinctively shaped leaves work well in between other big-leaved perennials, including ligularias, hosta, and peltoboykinia. Still, it doesn't draw a whole lot of notice until it blooms in the middle of fall. When it does, we take notice, especially since by that time it is one of only a few splashes of color in the garden.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
