|The cultivar, 'Leather Sheen' is a large, spreading perennial with thick, long, pointed, dark green leaves. Bell shaped, lavender flowers on straight, leafy 30 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. Wonderful contrast when planted with small-leaved plants, adding texture to the landscape. Slugs and snails love hostas!
