Sun King Spikenard
AVAILABLE AUGUST 2021
Bold, brilliant and tropical-style, this phenomenal newly introduced cultivar was first spotted by Barry Yinger in a Japanese nursery. Large, compound golden yellow leaves grow up to 3 ft. long on energetic reddish brown stems, quickly framing a rounded bushy clump that turns lime-green when there is too much shade. Topped with 2 ft. tall spikes of honeybee-friendly small white flowers, "Sun King" promises statuesque beauty wherever it is planted, bewitches birds with its purplish black berries and enjoys moist well-draining sites.
Size: 4' 0" – 5' 0" high x 3' 0" wide.
Hardy to zone 4.
