Syneilesis palmata

Shredded Umbrella Plant

Plant Type:


Syneilesis palmata – Deeply cut leaves with the stem attached at the center underside of each leaf (peltate) are rounded in outline, bold, broad and very showy in the woodland garden.The lobes are unevenly serrate and broader than those of S. aconitifolia. Mauve flowers on 3’ stems are composite form; the daisy or aster-like flowers offer clue to the family from which this astonishing perennial comes, the Asteraceae. Most woodlanders flower very early season, a handful at season’s end. But Syneilesis palmata provides for midsummer bloom when the hostas reign supreme. I think that Syneilesis are among a handful of truly fantastic new woodland introductions in recent years. This clumping perennial is bold and striking. Seed grown.
