(Boehmeria nivea var. tenacissima) This native to Honshu, Shikoku, and Kyushu, Japan, has been selected by the Japanese in a number of variegated forms. We are pleased to offer the selection Boehmeria 'Nichirin', which makes a 3' tall x 3' wide clump of fuzzy green leaves, each irregularly bordered with a wide white band.

Relax and enjoy your "sun corona"...lime not included.
