Plant details

This is a good architectural plant with big horse chestnut-like leaves. The new foliage and flowers buds are chocolate brown, but the leaves soon turn green with a hint of bronze, before going red in the autumn. The flowers are creamy white with a dash of pink. The key to success is moist soil but, if being grown in a sunny position, make sure that the ground doesn't dry out. Plants quickly spread, making an effective clump, for example, around natural ponds or in bog gardens, but they can easily be divided in spring if they get out of control.
