This beautiful variegated form of Syneilesis (sin-eel-ES-is) is now available at Peacock Horticultural Nursery.  I was very excited to see these rare Japanese woodland plants emerge in early spring with fuzzy, helmet-like leaves.  They open to striking, deeply cut palmate leaves variegated with creamy white veins.  The flowers are small and unexciting, but the leaves create a dramatic show.

‘Kikko’ will grow to about 18″ and grows best in part sun to light shade.
