(aka: A. hungaricus, A. longifolius) This stately deer-resistant perennial is a veritable tropical looking mass of large, dark green, deeply lobed, non spiny leaves, forming a 3' wide clump. In late summer, the fabulous 4' tall bloom spikes of unusual purple and white spiny flowers arise from the center of the clump...very unique!
