Fast growing perennial with beautiful, large leaves splashed with variegated creams and greens. Each leaf looks to be hand-painted. Loves moist soils and can grow in shallow water. In direct sun, it can grow 4 feet high with leaves a couple of feet in diameter. In shade, you’ll see half those former dimensions.
A native of Japan, the early Spring blooms and the stalks of the leaves are eaten. We value it as a foliage plant, with its striking color palette and spreading growth pattern.
