Tattered Umbrella. Beats the botanical name. A grand foliage plant with silken gray cones of new growth pushing from the earth in spring like improbable fungi and expanding to rounded leaves so deeply incised as to appear shredded. Way cool which is good as the flowers are nicht so gut.
First introduction to cultivation! Our collection of this rare species in a genus of excellent foliage perennials. Sue spotted this on an evening plant reccy while Kelly took to bed nursing a rib fracture incurred earlier while collecting fruit on a Photinia. A Photinia of all things! A Far Reaches Botanical Conservancy Offering.
A Hinkley collection from Taiwan of this interesting Composite whose deeply dissected foliage carries the day and is especially effective in half sun. Not a genus that leaps to the fore when thinking of flowers, this is a great foliage plant and intriguing in first growth. Collected as S. intermedia, this is most likely the species subglabrata.
A hybrid between two fab foliage species, Syneilesis palmata and S. aconitifolia. We have Diana Reeck of Collector's Nursery to thank for these goodies. Silken silver conical new growth unfurling to deeply dissected round leaves - nothing like it! Flowers are an afterthought.
