Product description

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: humus-rich, moist soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: May to June
  • Hardiness: borderline hardy (may need winter protection)

    Unusual, pure white hood-shaped flowers that are up to 10-15cm (4-6in) long are produced from late spring to mid-summer. It makes a striking architectural clump with lovely arrow-shaped, glossy dark green leaves. It looks great grown beside water as a marginal plant and can be left outside in most frost-prone areas if it is given a deep winter mulch.

  • Garden care: Mulch plants well in winter. Grow in reliably moist soil, or as a marginal pond plant. If potted up into a basket using aquatic compost, it can stand in water up to 30cm deep.

  • Harmful if eaten/skin & eye irritant

“Wide white spathes ( but not too scarily sci-fi) and green overlapping leaves, marked in silver Morse code, make this cool, elegant and versatile as pots will happily stand in shallow water”
