Farfugium japonicum v giganteum - BSWJ15122

Sorry this plant is not available at the moment. Please try again later or select an alternative plant.
A native to coastal areas of Japan, Korea and surrounding countries. Where we see the normal form of this evergreen species growing in poor well drained soils under the shade of coastal forests. Meanwhile we found this variety with much larger stems and foliage on the island of Madeira in 2017. Where it is commonly seen cultivated. After searching in vain for seed we came to the conclusion that this taxa does not produce seed, luckily we found plants thrown out into the native forest and liberated them. Well fed plants can form leaves over 60 cm across on meter tall petioles. Flowering October to December. Protect from hard frosts.
