Heloniopsis umbellata BSWJ1839


Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
Introduced from Taiwan by the plant hunting duo of Bleddyn and Sue Wynn-Jones, this makes rosettes of narrow leaves with heads of white flowers infused with lavender-pink in spring.  A gem for the shade garden as are all the species, this will also take part sun given moist conditions. While some authorities have sunk the genus Heloniopsis into our monotypic eastern US genus Helonias, we shall continue to wave the Heloniopsis flag from the ramparts at Far Reaches as the next revision will surely reinstate the status quo.
