Product Details
This is a fabulous plant for a sunny spot.
  Growth begins in the spring with the foliage emerging first. This is pale green and spoon-shaped with 3 or 4 obvious sunken veins running longitudinally. These are held on rigid petioles, upright at first but later laying flat.
  In mid summer the flower stems are produced which reach around 90 cms tall carrying the flowers. The flowers aren't much to look at but the bright creamy-yellow bracts which cover them certainly are. These are heart shaped an hang pendulously from the stem just above the flowers, basically concealing the flower.
