Bear’s-breeches are bold specimen plants that make a terrific show in a sunny location from mid to late summer. This selection forms a mound of bold green leaves, with taller spikes of hooded white flowers protected by prickly purple bracts. Excellent in containers, in mild winter regions. Great for cutting. Protect for the first winter with a deep mulch of leaves in late fall. May be divided in spring, and any root pieces left in the ground will grow into new little plants.
