An exotic looking hardy perennial with whorls of bold green lanceolate leaves arching like umbrellas, terminating in a strange and complex flower made up of broad green sepals and dainty golden threadlike petals. Lime-green stamens radiate from the prominent maroon and black tinged green knob at the centre. Ours is the highly desirable good form. June-August. Moist well-drained soil. 1.2m. H6. Prices start from £10.00.
