Flowers and Berries Review by Jeannie D | Zone: 8b
Quality
This plant has grown well for me here, north of Seattle, WA. Its soft bluish foliage combines well with Hostas, Heucheras and coarser ferns. The flowers and berries are a bonus. Warning: the doll's eyes" berries are highly toxic." (Posted on 1/13/2012)
