flowers in August.
originator made the following comment on the
of Seedy Fellows website: "H. 'Scallion
Pancakes' is a small plant with a large presence, it
stands out from the crowd with a distinct architectural
form. Not the typical shape of a small plant, it holds
each flat oval leaf straight up and out from the red
petioles, showing soft white backs. Good substance, fast
growth, pretty dark purple flared bell-shaped flowers en
masse starting in mid August, nicely in scale with the
foliage. Highly fertile with many stout purple pods.
