|'Silver Scrolls' (PP#12,066) is one of our
"classic" introductions, enthusiastically received by the gardening public and by
commercial producers. It is very vigorous and hardy, filling out into
large clumps from a spring planting and producing abundant
Growth Habit - It is
medium-size plant with a mound of foliage about 8" high X 16"
wide and erect flower stems to 24".
- The leaves are about 3.5"
across and highly silvered. When the new foliage appears in the spring
(lower right), it is silver flushed with burgundy, but as the season
progresses, it becomes almost silver and black, with the leaf veins
resembling cast iron scrollwork against a light background (right). The
foliage remains attractive through the fall and winter.
Flowers - White,
tinged with pink and from pink buds, borne in narrow panicles in late
spring and early summer.
| Special Features -
'Silver Scrolls' resulted from a hybrid cross made in 1996 at The
Primrose Path. Several other named cultivars including 'Silver Maps,'
'Silver Lode,' and 'Raspberry
Ice' were seedlings in this
same hybrid cross.
