There's no hiding from it: 'Midnight Masquerade' from Proven Winners is one of the best perennials for sun we've seen in ages! It's much more colorful, much sturdier, and much more disease resistant than older types, and hummingbirds and other pollinators love it. In spring, handsome burgundy foliage emerges, followed soon by sturdy flower spikes of cupped purple florets. This hardy and heat-tolerant perennial blooms in early and midsummer, and its dramatic foliage pairs perfectly with white and yellow flowers.
