A designer foliage plant perfect for adding colour and texture. The enormous leaves (to 30cm) grow on stems to 70cm and have a beautiful glossy glow. From mid summer the bright daisy like flowers add to the show. It has an air of magic about it.
Grow in moderately fertile to humus rich soil. Will grow in a sunny spot with sufficient moisture but is happier in shade or part shade. Moist soils are not a problem for these easy going plants, who thrive beside streams and ponds or bog gardens. They will also grow in any garden bed as long as they have sufficient moisture. Water to establish and keep moist during active growth. In warm weather they may sulk after a hot day, but add water, then the cool night air will have them perky again in no time. If growing in pots ensure you water well. You can cut it back at the end of the growing season to allow the new growth to shine.
It is commonly referred to as the Tractor Seat Plant due to the leaf shape.
