Description

Family Plantaginaceae.
Originating from N. America and E. Asia.

  • Tall semi-evergreen stems form a dense and bushy shrub-like habit.
  • Stunning pure white trumpet-shaped blooms appear over a long period.
  • Easy to grow in any soil in sun or light shade.

The beautiful tubular flowers are borne on upright, mid-green herbaceous stems that bear handsome, long elliptical leaves with a recessed central midrib, giving them a plump look. They are gracefully curved downwards and arranged oppositely on the upright stems, making a handsome display before the flowers appear.

The elegant floral display of pure white trumpet-shaped blooms begins in late spring and lasts through the summer until the first frosts. They are flushed pink when in bud, adding a subtle colour variation to the tall panicles of many individual flowers. Once mature, the blooms are widely flared at their tips and the petals recurve to reveal black-tipped stamens, beckoning to any passing pollinators, who are most happy to oblige by paying a pollen gathering visit.

The bright, eye-catchingly pure white, upright display offered by White Beard Tongue is most suited to exotic and traditional gardens where its tall habit looks great planted in drifts around larger upright plants, where it brings a stunning display to the mid-level of planting compositions, planted with species such as Cercis canadensis ‘Merlot’ or Cercis canadensis ‘Ruby Falls’, or Heptacodium miconioides.

Hardy and easy to grow in any soil in full sun or light shade and great in pots, this variety will remain evergreen in mild winters, dying back to ground level in harsh ones, but will reliably re-shoot in spring.

Height and spread after 2 – 5 years 1m x 50cm.
