Pollia japonica

Yabumyoga

Plant Type:

SHADE PERENNIALS

Pollia japonica - Glossy simple oblong lances in a whorl around erect stems support an extended terminal panicle packed with white florets. The inflorescence effects its reign in summer to late summer. Attractive blue berries follow and with the foliage extend the interest of this uncommon rhizomatous perennial. Each leaf can grow from 8 to as long as 12 inches. This will make an unusual low maintenance ground covering plant in a woodland patch by the sophisticated gardener... that means you! Dappled to open shade in fertile, organic soil. Established potted Yabumyoga from rhizome division.
