Plant Details

This plant deserves to be more widely known and grown. The foliage looks like it has been exposed to an exploding paint tin of yellow paint, the leaves being mottled and speckled with lemon. In late summer the whole effect is topped off with rich blood red-maroon “hot dog” flowers.

Likes a moist soil in full sun or partial shade.

From Japan.

Height: 60cm

Common name(s): Variegated burnet

All our plants are supplied in 9x10cm 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. We do not sell 'plug plants' because those need to be grown on before planting. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant. We grow everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside.
