|The cultivar, 'Whirlwind' is a medium size perennial with heart shaped, twisted, mixed white, yellowish, and yellowish-green leaves with dark green edges. Funnel shaped, lavender flowers bloom on straight, leafy 20 inch stems in the midseason.
Hardy perennials for shaded gardens with large, bold leaves often marked with contrasting colors. Leaves range in shape from round to lance-shaped, and colors can be yellow to green to blue, often with white, yellow or green marginal markings. Lavender or white flowers grow on stalks in early summer. Wonderful contrast when planted with small-leaved plants, adding texture to the landscape. Slugs and snails love hostas!
