Buy Gillenia trifoliata bowman's root: Charming, star shaped white flowers

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained, neutral to slightly acidic soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    A charming perennial that bears masses of delicate, star-shaped white flowers in midsummer. In autumn, the pretty, three-leafed foliage turns fiery red and the winter seedheads are a bonus too. Lovely towards the front of a shady woodland border, where the flowers can be appreciated.

  • Garden care: Divide congested plants in spring or autumn. Protect young shoots from slug attack.

Pretty flowers and leaves

Has done well in difficult dry shade. Fairly small first year but larger this year. The flowers are delicate and pretty though not long-lasting. However the foliage is attractive so still looks good after the flowers have gone

Pretty flowers. Working well in a bed where it is lightly shaded by a tree.

I have planted this in a large container along with a couple of smaller plants. It was only its first year (summer 2018) and was fine considering that. Hopefully, it will grow larger this year.

Everything about this plant is classy. It spangles in the mixed border. Always attracts positive comments from visitors.
