Pure class. A perennial of the first rank and a true aristocrat which is seldom available. Expensive? You bet and worth it. One of the true pains to produce commercially. This has broad pleated leaves and a tall flower stalk with lots of chocolate maroon flowers. Deer proof.  Small but sturdy plants that will need some time before they hit blooming size.  As a side note, finding blooming-sized plants of this species is pretty much impossible so don't think we're trying to pull one over on you!
