A delicate and very lovely plant, Kirengeshoma Koreana is suited to a woodland setting but is all too rarely seen, despite its evident charms. The mid-sized palmate leaves are rather maple-like in appearance and form a healthy clump, then in late summer tall slender stems bear flared pendent waxy primrose-yellow flowers. Partial shade. Moist fertile soil. 3 feet. 2 litre pot.


Certainly different and very elegant indeed. A plant with poise. The full name for this version of yellow wax bells is Kirengeshoma Palmata Koreana group, and the main difference between it and the species is that Koreana is a tad taller and has rather larger flowers. It’s the best choice, we think. From Korea (but you’ve guessed that) where its natural habitat is woodland. In a UK garden any spot with a bit of light shade will keep it happy.
