Description

This is a delightful and rather rare variation on an old-fashioned favourite. Plants form a clump of large green leaves, bearing short spikes of fragrant baby-pink bells in late spring. Clumps take a year or two to establish, then spread at steady pace, in time forming a sizeable patch. Tolerant of poor soils, even dry shade, but prefers a rich, moist soil. Protect from afternoon sun. Plants sometimes become dormant in summer, especially in regions with humid and hot weather. Easy and adaptable, this will even grow well in tubs or mixed containers. CAUTION: Toxic if eaten.
