Plantain Lillies


These shade-tolerant foliage plants are in year 3 (2022) in our garden. They are sensitive to the cold winters and will take a few years to grow into the large, splendid plants that we see in warmer, longer growing seasons. They do produce a tall flower, usually white in August if we do not get an early frost. The variegated leaves and shades of dark green to almost blue add depth to the garden and a backdrop for the flowering plants and shrubs around them.
