'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 flowers.

Growth Habit - It is medium-size plant with a mound of foliage about 8" high X 16" wide and erect flower stems to 24".

Foliage -
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.
