The clustering (not carpeting) marvelously 3-D "Spinach Bugleweed" forms a slowly-increasing flat mound of crinkly purple foliage; over which appear springtime tiny spikes of blue lipped flowers. Choice. Ross suggests this to more accurately be 'Mini Crisp Red,' while it is also sometimes sold as A.p. purpurea crispa in East Coast nurseries. This cutie, however, does not really care what it is called as it creates a non-invasive mound of crinkled violet in your rockery (perfect for underplanting dwarf Daffodils, etc) or anchors the design of a larger trough planting.
Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.
If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.×
