It is a vigorous plant with large dark purple flower  clusters. ‘Homestead Purple’ has excellent heat tolerance, deep green foliage and is a profuse bloomer from early spring  until fall frost.  Discovered growing on an old Georgia homestead.

 This rampant perennial  is topped with a mass of bright purple blooms that start in the spring and continue until frost. Its  leaves are deep green, scalloped, coarse-textured and up to 4 inches long.
