The great, broad planes of this magnificent Chinese native bring an unmatched calm to shady garden spots. Recessed in the center where thick, hairy stalks are attached, the bold foliage emerges in unique bright green shades, and later matures to light green. Nearly 2 ft. across, each slightly lobed, umbrella-like leaf is tastefully scalloped. Strong, dark-flowering stems soar aloft to 5 ft., hosting heavy drooping plumes of star-shaped, creamy white flowers. Once considered a member of the genus Rodgersia, this monumental Astilboides thrives in moist, humus-rich soil.
Blooms June–early August
