(syn: Comanthosphace stellipilum) Leucosceptrum 'October Moon' is a marvelous Japanese selection of their native mountain shrub mint. Unlike many members of the mint family, Leucosceptrum 'October Moon' stays in an 18" wide clump, sending out 3' long, upright, woody stems clothed with toothed 7" long x 4" wide, fuzzy green leaves, each edged in chartreuse gold. In mid-October the clumps are topped with short, upright, light pink, brush-like spikes. Leucosceptrum stellipilum is very easy to grow, thriving in an array of soil and moisture regimens.
