Darmera peltata

Genus: Darmera.

Species: Darmera peltata.

Unusual plant that flowers before any leaves appear.
The flower stalk shoots out of the ground and can be upto 2ft (60/65cm) tall. The leaves then start to develop and are very large, about the size of a dinner plate.
Good plant for moist shade. Slugs do not seem to be a problem.
