  • AGM

  • Plant for shade

Glossy green heart-shaped leaves with striking red veins and red undersides are a lovely contrast to the fragrant white flowers which hang in clusters. Very late to appear in spring so worth marking its spot in the garden so it isn't dug up by mistake. Blooms from late summer until the first frosts. Remove spent flowers to encourage further blooms.

Prefers a rich, well-drained soil in full partial shade. Mulch in winter. Requires a sheltered position in the garden. Can be grown in a container. 

Height: 12 - 24 inches / 30 - 60cm                      

Spread: 12 - 18 inches / 30 - 45cm
