Description

Dense white spikes veined in green provide continuous landscape color with the pale pink flowers appearing sporadically to add to the appeal. This non-hardy shrub can get large in warmer climates, but in the Chicago area, that is unlikely. It attracts pollinators to the garden and is relatively pest free. Sunny to partially shaded locations are preferred with soils that stay on the moist side.
