This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: moist to boggy, slightly acidic soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Hardiness: frost tender (will need winter protection)

    The show-stopping foliage of this impressive, moisture-loving perennial, will add colour and contrast to pond edges, jungle-themed borders or even patio pots (provided they are kept well watered!). Topping variously streaked upright stems, giant, heart-shaped leaves unfurl in spring and summer, opening to reveal their rich green, plum and lime colouring.

  • Garden care: Gradually reduce watering into autumn, and lift pots before the first frost, overwintering them in a frost-free place. In spring, water more often, but do not move them back outside until after all risk of frost has passed.
  • Harmful if eaten/skin & eye irritant
