Sugar & Spice



Description

Large lush green leaves with a dark stripe down each lobe form a neat mound of foliage; pink flower buds open to reveal the foamy white flowers on graceful spikes; dramatic foliage, shade tolerance and repeat flowering make this one a winner. Candy Striper Foamflower has masses of beautiful spikes of lightly-scented white bell-shaped flowers rising above the foliage from mid spring to mid summer, which emerge from distinctive pink flower buds, and which are most effective when planted in groupings. The flowers are excellent for cutting. Its attractive large lobed leaves emerge chartreuse in spring, turning dark green in color with distinctive burgundy veins the rest of the year. The fruit is not ornamentally significant. The dark red stems are very colorful and add to the overall interest of the plant.
