AGM. A herbaceous perennial which spreads by rhizomes to form extensive clumps. These are covered by showy white, flower-like bracts, which surround the greenish flowers in late spring and early summer, followed by bright red fruits. In autumn the leaves turn a rich mahogany red. May-Jul. H10cm S75cm.
Grow in a moist but well-drained, neutral-acid soil in sun or partial shade. This North American woodland species is one of the finest ground cover plants for acid soils and is particularly useful for growing between shrubs such as rhododendrons.
Macplants are central/southern Scotland's largest growers of herbaceous perennials, alpines, ferns and ornamental grasses. We have our plant centre open to the public in East Lothian, close to Edinburgh and we also supply a diverse range of trade clients both in the landscape and garden centre sectors.
We grow a large range of plants including many interesting and unusual varieties not usually seen for sale. Amongst the many plants we grow are our highly praised autumn Gentians bred here by Dr Ian McNaughton and probably the largest range of Meconopsis cultivars found anywhere.
