Description

Giant Variegated Butterbur. First disclaimer: use with caution...this plant is very hardy and vigorous and will colonize areas with its dinner plate yellow splashed foliage.That being said you may be in need of a plant for a troublesome wet area where establishing other ornamentals has proven difficult. Creamy white fragrant flowers on short stocks appear in early spring provide pollen for early foraging bees.  Plants grow 2-3′ tall and spread by rhizomes.Giant Butterbur will not look happy in soil that dries out. Slugs and snails can be a nuisance. We use Sluggo for that.

Check your state’s invasive species list to see if it allowed in you area.
