Big, rough textured, deeply cut oak-like foliage covers this dense rounded plant and serves as a backdrop for big upright cones of buds that form in early summer. Buds open to reveal huge white flowers that fade to pink and last into fall. Compact form. Superb foliage in summer and great fall foliage color. Incredibly long bloom season. Easy to grow and thrives in partial shade. Perfect for use alone or grouped.
