  • Love this plant because the foliage is so different. I disagree about the height though. Mine, in the garden grows closer to 12 -14 inches which is perfect as a middle sized plant. I even leave it in the ground well into winter.

    Above Average Superior performance, among my favorites, would recommend to others.

  • Silver Cascade brightened the border of a mounded perennial garden beautifully. This year I'd like to plant more of them and fill in between some perennials...it's a favorite!

    Outstanding My favorite plant, I recommend to others all the time and explain the reasons why I like it so much.
