Chrysosplenium macrophyllum

Chrysosplenium macrophyllum is a really excellent plant for a woodland or other cool damp place. It makes a clump of thick, leathery, slightly hairy leaves and in spring puts up a stem with an umbel of flowers that are really white, but have such prominent pink stamens that they look pale pink from a distance. These flowers are made even more impressive by large, pale green bracts. Then it produces long runners, each of which eventually gives a new plant, so over a few years it can give a substantial and extremely impressive display.

Fantastic! Large leathery leaves and clusters of palest pink flowers.
