Datisca cannabina

£5.50

Quite an incredible plant for the back of the border.Tall, strong, fabulous, arching, cane-like stems sprout large, pendulous, terminal sprays of creamy-yellow-green flowers, and are clad in palmate leaves resembling, er… cannabis.. apparently! This is perhaps the tallest herbaceous perennial you can grow, and is yet another reliable “baffle-the-expert” plant.
