Tellima grandiflora, 35+ seeds
This unusual perennial is a native of California, but incredibly little-known. In mid spring, Tellima grandiflora sends up tall ghostly stalks of greenish-white, urn-shaped, fringed-petaled flowers. The blooms are fragrant and often visited by hummingbirds. The fun thing about these blossoms that they age from white to dark pink, so during the flowering season, one sees white, light pink and dark pink all on the same plant! A mature specimen of Tellima grandiflora with good clumps of attractive, hairy, toothed foliage is an asset in the shady gardens. The large heart-shaped leaves sometimes have a winter bronzing, and looks like those of a Coral Bells on steoroids. Hardy from zone 4 upwards. 1 feet tall, 1 1/2 feet wide. Heavy to part shade. Moist, rich soil. Hard-to-find seeds, harvested 06/2017.
