Product Details
Looks very similar to Mukdenia acanthifolia but differs in that this has pale pink flowers.

A choice herbaceous woodland perennial reaching up to 15 cms high or thereabouts when in flower. It is a hardy perennial producing generally thickened stumpy rhizomes from which rise both leaves and flowers. Foliage is greyish-green but emerges in spring with a pinkish cast being rounded rather like a Bergenia but the edges are serrated. Flowers are held on rigid stout stems which bear panicles of numerous small palest pink flowers. Good reddish autumn colour.
