I have lusted in my heart for Syneilesis 'Kikko' after seeing a photo taken in Japan several years ago. The fuzzball-like foliage expands to form a shredded umbrella-like leaf atop an 18" tall stem. The veins on the leaf of Syneilesis 'Kikko' emerge creamy-yellow, providing an amazing contrast before the color fades in summer. I wish I could describe the tall thin spikes of tiny grey flowers as exciting, but hey...focus on the leaves. As with all syneilesis, they are easy to grow and amazingly drought-tolerant once established. If you're looking to one-up your gardening friends, I can think of no better way to start. Our supply is very limited, so don't delay.
