If you've been lucky enough to see this plant at either garden, you'll know that it's an exceptional form. In cool weather, the leaves change from green to silver-grey with a touch of red around the edges. In early spring, the clumps are topped with large flower clusters which often have some red running into the flower stems. The actual flowers are the typical green of the species. Don't miss the opportunity to get one for your garden.
