This fabulous selection of the evergreen A. shuttleworthii var. harperi is from the Pine Mountain, Georgia region. The small rounded half-dollar-sized leaves are dark green but heavily mottled with dramatic silver venation. A. 'Callaway' is quite stoloniferous, eventually making a dense evergreen deer-resistant groundcover to 3' wide in 10 years. In late spring, the large purple jug-like flowers adorn the base of the plant...WOW!
