Spikes of yellowish-white pink or red star-shaped flowers on tall reddish-green stems in mid- and late-summer above heavily-veined deeply-divided dark-green leaves. This handsome foliage plant is perfect for the moist margins of a pond or stream. Slow-to-establish it's best grown in a sheltered partially shady site that's moist but not water-logged.

  • Garden care: Add lots of well-rotted leaf mould when planting. Protect the young foliage against slug damage using beer traps or environmentally friendly slug pellets. Lift and divide congested colonies in early spring.
