It can take several years to grow to its fullest, but it’s so worth it! White flowers appear in late spring. At the 2006 AHS convention auction a single plant of Humpback Whale sold for $3,700!

Their subtle colors, tall flower scapes, and broad, coarse leaves fill a niche in garden designs that few other plants can achieve.
