Mark Zilis and Doug Lohman crossed 'Sum and Substance' with venusta to create 'Leather Sheen'. The plant is 30" in diameter and 14-15" high. The glossy, dark green leaves exhibit heavy texture. The flat leaves are ovate-cordate (7" x 3"). The 30" scape is foliated and straight. The medium-sized, bell-shaped flowers are pale lavender and fertile. The blooms appear midseason.
