'Lakeside Coal Miner', winner of the Pauline Banyai Award in 1998, quickly develops into a good clump. Its very dark, shiny, undulating leaves provide contrast for other plants in the shade garden. Dark purple flowers add to the rich coloring of this selection. It is a 1998 introduction. The heritage is "seedling #10" x "seedling #10." The leaves are ovate with a rounded base.
