Petasites palmatus ‘Golden Palms’

Golden Coltsfoot

USDA Zone: 6-9

Plant number: 1.408.150

Jagged-edged, umbrella shaped leaves are a beautiful bright chartreuse yellow shade, perfect as a foliage accent in a moist to wet border. Bizarre pink drumstick flower spikes appear in very early spring. Plants are inclined to spread underground to form a patch. Nice at the waterside or in containers. Needs afternoon shade in hot summer regions. In cool climates full sun will produce the best foliage colour. Worth growing in pots cold winter regions, bringing indoors to a cold room for the winter. This species is native to northern California.
