Umbrella Plant (Darmera Peltata.
Umbrella Plant (Darmera Peltata. is another one of my favourite moist soil loving plants. The first sign in the spring is the 2 ft high rounded head of small pink flowers in late April/early May. The leaves then appear and when mature can reach between 3 to 4 ft high, although considerably shorter in younger plants. They can grow to 1 ft across and are like miniature Gunnera leaves but they have the benefit of changing colour in the Autumn to red and brown.
It is suitable for planting alongside ponds stream lakes and bog gardens and will add a dramatic effect to your garden.
