We have selected these A. kumageanums for their incredibly glossy black-green foliage, looking as though they had just been through a car wash and wax. The 4" long pointed evergreen leaves make a quick growing 1' wide clumping specimen in a rich woodland setting. For those who thrive on insignificant facts, "kumageanum" means "bear's hair" in Japanese...something to do with the location where it was originally found...why ask why?
