|The cultivar, 'Irische See' is a small to medium, spreading 24 inch perennial with thick, oval, light bluish-green leaves on purple-dotted petioles. Bell shaped, pale lavender flowers bloom on straight, bare 10 inch stems in the midsummer.
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. Wonderful contrast when planted with small-leaved plants, adding texture to the landscape. Slugs and snails love hostas!
