Marvelous ruffled foliage of dazzling silvers with tints of rose purple will leave you spellbound. The purple tones are more prominent in the spring and fall. Silver tones are more prevalent in shade. It forms a big plant with a dense, multi-crown habit. Great in containers or in the landscape. A new popularity poll winner!
