It is worth growing this perennial just for its leaves. It is perfectly winter hardy in Zone 7a.

A really great plant. We grow it in heavy shade and it seems to glow.

Those leaves are just beautiful. I looked this one up at FBTS, "Fuji Snow", a nice name. I don't love all variegated plants, but this one looks really good. I love variegated hostas and plumonarias but find them very difficult to grow in our climate and this looks like this might be worth trying instead of them. Opinions, please.

My Fuji Snow loses its white in its leaves once the hot weather sets in, and it returns a little in the fall. I don't know if it would be happy in NE Texas.
