Petasites frigidus var. palmatus ‘Golden Palms’

We have grown Petasites frigidus var. palmatus ‘Golden Palms’ in the jungle part of the garden for well over ten years. In recent years it seems to have suffered from drier conditions, but with Covid-19 enforcing working from home rather than the office the garden has benefited from more water as one of us has been about during the day a lot more. As a result we have seen it spread and recover significantly, and were rewarded with some superb leaves this spring.

We must remember to keep up the watering regime this year!



  1. It's a gorgeous plant. It's hard to grow plants with leaves that size in my own climate. I'm envious.

    1. Quite sensitive to hear this one, wilts easily
