Umbrella Plant


Umbrella plant sends up a flower stalk with pink or white blooms in early spring, but it's the dramatic 2-foot-diameter leaves that are the main attraction. They're gorgeously frilled at the edges and give areas a lush look. It's native to moist, shady streamsides in California and Oregon. It requires a constant supply of moisture to grow well.
