Yikes! Wicked, scary, and bizarre. Half-inch decorative orange thorns line the orange veins on both tops and undersides of the long, deeply lobed blue-green leaves. More thorns on the orange fuzzy stems. Star-shaped 1" lavender flowers in summer are just the plant's futile attempt to look cute. Fiercely beautiful in combination with orange flowers or copper foliage.

Not listed in the print catalog: very limited availability.

From Madagascar and tropical Africa where it's twice the size and its protective prickles repel all sorts of wild beasts. Do you suppose our deer would leave this one alone?
