Kirengeshoma palmata AGM
Yellow Wax Bells
Type/Hardiness Herbaceous, Perennial, Hardy
Flowering period Late summer/Autumn
Height 24-36in/60-90cm
Light preference Full shade/part shade
Soil preference Rich, moist, loamy
Sowing time/depth Spring, barely cover
A lovely woodland plant. Tall, dark, upright stems bear light green, maple-shaped leaves and the spherical flower buds open to 1in, waxy, pale yellow, bell-shaped blooms in autumn. Choose a well-sheltered site as although strictly speaking hardy, neither new spring growth nor flowers tolerate frost and mature plants do not like being battered by rain and wind. They will, however, usually recover from such ravages.
Sowing and/or growing instructions
Sow in spring on the surface, in modules filled with good, moist compost, and lightly dust with more compost or vermiculite, at around 70F/21C. Germination can take anything from 4 weeks to some months. Do not exclude light. Protect young plants from frost over winter and plant out in late spring/early summer in rich, moist, loamy soil - dislikes dry, alkaline situations.
