Info

A rare but most useful fall-flowering perennial, sometimes semi-woody in mild climates for dappled shade. The 4-5" leaves are a velvety light green to chartreuse with cream edges in this lovely Japanese selection. The autumn flowers, a light lavender, are a very nice contrast and useful for late season effect when there is little else in bloom. This Japanese selection, brought to North America by plantsman Barry Yinger, enjoys evenly moist soil in shade to sun in particularly moist places. Endures in temperatures to at least USDA zone 5.

Leucosceptrum 'October Moon' is a marvelous Japanese selection of their native mountain shrub mint. Unlike many members of the mint family, Leucosceptrum 'October Moon' stays in an 18" wide clump, sending out 3' long upright woody stems, clothed with toothed 7" long x 4" wide, fuzzy green leaves, each edged in chartreuse gold. In mid-October the clumps are topped with short, upright, light pink, brush-like spikes. Leucosceptrum stellipilum is very easy to grow, thriving in an array of soil and moisture regimens.
