Kirengeshoma palmata/Yellow Waxbells

Kirengeshoma palmata/Yellow Waxbells
Light-Partial Shade
Flowering Time:Mid-Late Summer
Zone: 5

This is a first-rate foliage plant, forming an exotic-looking,
upright mound of toothed green maple-shaped leaves. Flowers appear
in late summer as tubular sulphur-yellow bells, rising above the leaves
on purple-black stems. A good candidate for planting in a cool, damp
woodland garden. Plants can be somewhat slow to establish and appreciate
a mulch of leaves to keep the soil moist and cool. Beautiful in
combination with Hostas, ferns, Astilbe, Toad-lilies and other
shade-loving perennials. One of the few late-flowering woodland
perennials. Great for cutting. Easily divided in spring, every 4 to 5
years. Cut the dead foliage and stems back to the ground in late autumn.
