Butomus Umbellatus


On back-order, will ship in Spring 2020

SKU: PPGD-MA005 Category:


This handsome marginal plant from Asia is a splendid sight at the water’s edge when grown in groups of 6-10 plants. It is sometimes known as the water gladiolus because of the attractive bi-coloured flowers, 2.5cm (1in) across and gathered in a distinctive umbel at the top of stems which are taller than the long, narrow leaves. It is happiest right at the edge of the pond where it can dip its toes in shallow water. The rhizomes, used in its native region for making flour, spread vigorously and plants should be divided regularly or flowering may decline. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
