DarmeraPeltata_2-lge

Darmera peltata is featured in April 2017 Country Living Magazine and is pictured on the Garden Notes page.

The piece mentions it as a plant to create ‘waterside interest with an architectural impact’ but in a smaller scale than the well known Gunnera manicata.

Buy Darmera peltata with its domed heads of pink flowers on tall, bare stems in April/May before the leaf emerges as large round leaves on taller stems. In Autumn the leaves turn a rich kaleidoscope of orange and red hues.

It grows from a rhizome that should be planted on the soil and not buried beneath the soil level.
