|Plant Description|| ||SHADE. One of the best foliage plants for shade, to my mind. Big rounded leaves, with interesting contrast markings, very easy to grow & looks good all thru the season. The clump itself gets about 40cm x 40cm, flower stems 60-70cm|
The 'fringed' flowers are out thru spring, on their long graceful stems, all greeny cream, & working among the plants is a real delight. The perfume is superb!! No petals..just a wee pinkish fringe. Unusual. The picture is of a young one from last season, now doubled in size.
Once flowering is finished, around the end of spring, trim the stems back to the base, & give the plant a light feed of blood & bone to set it up for the rest of the season. It will do you proud in most soil conditions, in light shade.
After winter it needs a good clip over to remove the old foliage, another light fertilising, & off again for another season. You may even find a baby or three nearby.
