Latin name:

Description: Well known garden plants grown for their large, imposing and often beautifully variegated leaves.

Off-white, bell-shaped flowers are held above the foliage in summer, which are much loved by bees.

Hardiness: Very hardy though probably worth mulching in a really cold snap.

Height: 60cm when

Position: Full sun to shade position where the leaves are bigger out of direct sun

Soil: Any well drained garden soil

Water: Water well to establish. Heavily mulch to retain moisture in dry periods and water sparingly if under stress

Usage: At the front of borders and in woodland settings where they will slowly spread. Excellent as container plants

I am not an experienced gardener - more of an enthusiastic amateur who learns by trial and error and who is keen to "manage" the effects of shifting weather patterns on my garden. Writing this blog is my passion and it has evolved over 12 years to inspire engagement with climate change outside our back doors, in our personal gardens and green spaces. My mission is to fertilise and expand this platform to grow a community of global gardeners communicating about the effects of climate change on our plants and exploring how each individual can make small changes in our lives to become more sustainable. The future of our gardens and #OurPlanet is in our hands - please plant your own seeds for our collective sustainable future.
