Plant Overview

An easy-to-grow, tuberous plant with eye-catching spires of coral-pink blooms in late spring. Attractive foliage too, which is tinged with silver and nicely divided for a soft-textured look. 

Most happy in shade, although will also grow in a sunny spot. Moist or dry soil. 

Good for under planting trees and shrubs. Does well in containers too. Note that the foliage dies back after flowering in spring.

Good drought resistance when established.

Height and spread: 25cm x 35cm

Common name(s): Fumewort

All our plants are supplied in 9cm pots unless otherwise specified. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants in bigger pots planted at the same time. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant.
The majority of our plants are grown outdoors. This means that they follow their natural growth patterns and are ready to plant at any time of the year. If you order the plants in winter, they are likely to be dormant and died back to ground level, ready to shoot again in spring - just like the herbaceous perennials in your own garden. Very occasionally, in winter, we may indicate on the packing slip that a plant needs to be hardened off before planting out. This will be because it has just come out of a polytunnel. If you have any questions about our plants or growing methods, please feel free to drop us an email.
We grow most of what we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside. Our prices include VAT at 20%.
