Zoom In Photo: Great Plant Picks

This dwarf form of the umbrella plant grows to only about one foot tall. Darmera is a slowly spreading, shade-loving, foliage plant and is a great solution for damp soils, river banks or pond edges but also tolerates average garden conditions. The pale pink star-shaped flowers emerge first in spring followed by the large umbrella-like foliage. The leaves turn crimson in the autumn. Native to northwestern California and southwestern Oregon.
