Product Description

Sometimes called Elephant Ears, this is a bold specimen perennial that needs a moist location. Plants form a clump of large, rounded dark-green leaves with a purple backside. Taller stems appear in June, bearing clusters of bright golden orange daisy flowers. Superb for the back of the border, or at the waterside. An unusual centrepiece for a tub or large container. Both the flowers and leaves are great for cutting. Slugs can be troublesome. Clumps may be divided in the spring, every 3 to 4 years. ‘Othello’ is very similar to the variety ‘Desdemona’, but slightly earlier to flower.Size 2L
