mikeChinese Hat aka Holmskioldia tettensis (that’s a mouthful☺)

The Chinese Hat has become one of our favorite plants since we purchased one to try 5 or 6 years ago. It grew 3 to 4 feet its first year, and another 3 to 4 feet the following. It now stands above our 6 foot fence covered with clusters of pink and purple flowers resembling the conical Chinese hat worn in many Asian cultures. It responds well to trimming, no bugs, grows fast, long bloom season, and unique that not everyone has it, are reasons enough to try one! Hope you enjoy as much as we do.

-Mike
