Plant details

This plant has really dramatic foliage: huge, circular, slightly scalloped leaves are held aloft like table tops. These can reach up to 90cm across. In mid-summer tall spikes of creamy-white flowers rise above the leaves. It's a really good plant for a water's edge or other wettish areas.
