Kirengeshoma palmata Koreana Group

Korean Yellow Waxbells

USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 1.298.800

This is a first-rate foliage plant, forming an exotic-looking, upright clump of toothed green maple-shaped leaves. Flowers appear in late summer as pendulous lemon-yellow bells, flaring open and held at the top of the stems. A good candidate for planting in a cool, damp woodland garden. Plants can be somewhat slow to establish and appreciate a mulch of leaves to keep the soil moist and cool. Beautiful in combination with Hostas, ferns, Astilbe, Toad-lilies and other shade-loving perennials. One of the few late-flowering woodland perennials. Great for cutting.
