Palmate Coltsfoot (Petasites frigidus var. palmatus)
Palmate Coltsfoot is a hardy and versatile native perennial that offers a firecracker display of creamy white-pink flowers. Its blooms are a treat for local pollinators and human admirers alike. Palmate Coltsfoot’s large, deep-toothed leaves also add an elegant touch to the composition of any landscape. This easy-to-grow groundcover is highly adaptable, thrives in both sunny and shady conditions, as long as it is planted in a high moisture zone. It reaches two feet in height and will spread through creeping rhizomes, making this variety a worthwhile investment if you desire to fill out your landscape.
