Petasites japonica variegata

£7.50

While flower-arrangers love the posy-like heads of pale yellow flowers which burst through bare clay in early spring, this is a plant for landscaping with its large round leaves bearing yellow streaks and blotches and invasive roots, making impenetrable ground-cover in heavy soil, even in solid clay. Smaller than its “sibling” Pet.jap.gigantea, it is no less impressive.

Position: Woodland shade
• Soil: Deep, moist heavy soil
• Rate of growth: Rapid
• Flowering period: Early Spring
• Hardiness: Hardy
• Pot size:2L
• Eventual height and spread: 18″ x unlimited
