Previously P. microcephala 'Purple Fantasy'. Fairly new in cultivation, this eye-catching plant is ideal for a pot, but will spread if planted in the garden - ideal vigourous ground cover, but it may swamp smaller plants! Oddly shaped green leaves have dramatic purple and cream markings. Deciduous.
