Description: An erect, rhizomatous perennial typically growing 12-20” tall. Oblong leaves emerge dusky purple in spring, mature to a rich burgundy-purple and acquire a reddish tinge in autumn. Stems are also purple. Yellow flowers (actually showy bracts) appear in late spring and are usually lightly tinged with purple. The true flowers are yellowish-green and inconspicuous. Foliage provides interesting summer and fall accent. Milky sap can irritate skin and eyes and is mildly poisonous if ingested.
