Pricing & Availability
Prosartes maculataAlso known as:
Prosartes maculata is a woodland wildflower with dark-green, glossy leaves on branched stems. The abundant nodding flowers hang in pairs, are up to 1 1/2" long, yellowish or creamy white, and delicately dotted with purple.. The fruit are fleshy and berry-like.
Easy to grow in a woodland-like setting where the plants will be exposed to filtered light, and the roots will remain cool. Moist, well-drained soil rich in organic material is best. Maintaining a layer of mulch around the plants is recommended to help retain soil moisture where summers are hot. Zones 5-7.
Propagate from seed or root division of mature clumps.
