We were thrilled to find yet another in the overlooked genus boehmeria that makes a great garden specimen. The deciduous Boehmeria japonica 'Platanifolia' makes a 5' tall x 4' wide texturally enchanting clump of upright stems, clothed with fascinatingly bold, deeply-incised green leaves, each attached to the stem by a bright red petiole. The top of the stems are adorned in late summer...I use the term "adorned" loosely...with floral stalks that look like limp pipe cleaners. Visitors to the garden seem quite enchanted with this...we hope you feel the same.
