Puriri Lane | Astilboides tabularis

Astilboides tabularis

Regular price $20.00

This is an unusual perennial, formerly known as Rodgersia tabularis, but now given a name of its own by botanists. This plant forms a large mound of deep green circular, umbrella-like leaves. In early summer it produces large creamy-white plumes that are similar to those of an  Astilbe. 

A perfect choice for a  very moist position - we have ours beside the pond but also perfect beside a stream. In hot, humid summer areas, this plant is best in partial shade. Will tolerate full sun with plenty of moisture and rich soil, but is also happy in clay soils!  The flowers and leaves are excellent for cutting. Plants can be divided in early spring.  A bold specimen plant,  that adds lots of drama to your garden when it is happy! 

We only have a few of these so if you think it is one for you, don't miss out.
