  • Flowers attract bees

  • Plant for chalk soil

  • Plant for shade

A robust perennial with handsome, glossy, lobed foliage which emerges in shades of yellow in spring, fading to pale yellow-green by summer. Tall spikes of white and burgundy lipped flowers appear in summer. New growth in autumn also has conspicuous yellow tints.

Prefers a good garden soil in partial shade which will give the best leaf colour. Once planted do not disturb. Will sucker if roots are damaged. Mulch well in the first winter as it can be less hardy than the species.

Spread: 24 - 48 inches / 60 - 120cm
