This British offering has been termed endearingly a “thug” by Vanessa Cook of Stillingfleet, but what a great thug! The speckled silvered foliage and outstanding vigor make this a great plant for American gardens. Flower spikes have tightly packed heads of pinkish red buds, which open to violet flowers. Admired and named by Beth Chatto for the plantsman, Reginald Kaye.
