|The cultivar, 'Sea Monster' is a very large, spreading perennial with heart shaped, cupped and puckered, grey-green leaves. Bell shaped, lavender flowers bloom on straight, bare 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. 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!
