Syneilesis palmata ‘Kikko’


Syneilesis palmata 'Kikko'
Syneilesis palmata ‘Kikko’

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.

Variegated Acanthus mollis ‘Tasmanian Angel’


Acanthus mollis ‘Tasmanian Angel’ is an unusual and spectacularly variegated foliage plant to  create a bright feature in your shade garden.  This variegated form of the Acanthus (Bear’s Breeches) displays a pale yellow and green leaf emerging in early spring; the dramatic variegation is emphasized as the yellow pales to ivory white, and the green deepens to a rich lustrous green.  The leaf form also adds to the drama, with it’s deeply scalloped edge and large scale when mature.  A mature plant will send up a spike of pale pink and white flowers up to 5′ tall.

Tasmanian Angel will make a bold clump about 3′ x 3′ if you provide a deep rich soil in part sun to shade in zones 7 – 10 .    Deer resistant.

Other varieties of the Bear’s Breeches available at Peacock Horticultural Nursery include Acanathus mollis ‘Hollard’s Gold’ with golden leaves.
