Positive JustMe48 On Aug 5, 2011, JustMe48 from Rochester, NY (Zone 6a) wrote:

A sport of 'Blue Umbrellas.' Outstanding leaves have large, pure white centers with blue-green, jetting margins. Pale lavender flowers. Leaves are of heavy substance, making them more slug resistant. Despite the white center this one seems to grow well. Moderately corrugated. The centers can green a bit in extreme heat. This low care perennial is ideal for shady positions. Height 2-3 feet, width 3-4 feet.
