|The cultivar, 'Elata' is a very large perennial with oval, mid-green leaves tapering to a point with rippled edges. Funnel shaped, lavender flowers bloom on slightly leaning, leafy 48 inch stems in the midsummer.
Hardy, deciduous 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.
