Disporum flavens

Korean Fairy Bells
a.k.a Disporum flavum. Korean Fairy Bells. So easy, so stunning, so underplanted. A dozen years ago, our buddy Margie Mott visited with a clump of this from one of the gardens she tended. She informed us we needed to grow this plant, and she was so right! This graceful shade plant emerges in mid spring with nodding butter yellow bells. The display carries on for a couple of weeks, after which the foliage remains attractive and well behaved. 24" tall. Slow at first, but long lived.
