Medium/Large: The Shire - Elegant - glossy deep green, scalloped edged leaves that gently fall from the strongly upright petioles. A Medium - Large about 19” high, fountain form. The Shire evokes a distant, simpler time, of sweeping green pastures dotted with sheep, and maybe a Hobbit or two. In the garden 'The Shire' is a magical stand of deeply toned sculpted leaves with a sheen that draws attention. The Shire can also serve as a subtle yet elegant foil for highly variegated flamboyant showy hostas.
