Darmera peltata “Nana”


Shorter than its fellow, Darmera peltata, “Nana” is more suited to the smaller garden or the front of a wet border. It makes an attractive carpet effect with round scallop-edged, bronze-tinted leaves whose colour intensifies to reddish tints in full sun and retentive soil. This dwarf form only grows to an average height of 12” and is a great solution for damp soils, river banks or pond edges. The pale pink star-shaped flowers emerge first in Spring followed by the large umbrella-like foliage. The leaves turn crimson in the Autumn

Darmera peltata ‘Nana’ is a perennial reaching an average of 12” in height. It has small pink-to-white flowers in rounded clusters which appear atop thick hairy stems in early spring before the foliage. Large rounded medium-green leaves that can reach 14-inches in size emerge after the plant has bloomed. Upward facing leaves typically collect and hold small pools of rain water.The bold foliage definitely attracts attention and looks great when combined with ferns, hostas, grasses and Solomon’s seal. Darmera peltata ‘Nana’ attracts bees and butterflies, and is good as a cut flower too!
