'Herman's Pride' is the most popular cultivar of this European species, and is more commonly sold at conventional nurseries than the species. I have not seen it sold at the big box stores that have garden sections. It is not one of the big popular perennials, but I do see it occasionally in gardens and landscapes. It is a very nice and reliable herbaceous plant. The cultivar differs from the mother species in having less rounded, more narrow & pointed leaves (lanceolate) and in having the silver variegation being more regularly marked on the leaves. I have not seen it eaten by deer, but it is noted that slugs can be a problem.
