Pot Size: 7.5 litre
Description: A long cultivated species which we were fortunate to find some seed of in the mountains near Kochi on the island of Shikoku Japan in the autumn of 2006. Cultivated for its foliage which is used in religious ceremonies, hence its old name of I. religisiosum. We gathered the starry seed-heads from shrubs of around 2m tall, which had born the creamy-white many narrow petalled flowers, late spring to early summer for us. The shrubs were clothed with obovate to oval thick-textured aromatic leaves a pale green. Easily grown in most fertile soils with adequate drainage and moisture retaining humus, in sun or light shade.
