Painters Palette is a lovely plant that lights up the shade with its bright leaves, splashed with white streaking and a red chevron. Also flowers in summer with plumes of tiny red flowers. Quite striking in a mass.
Spreads slowly by stolons and seed to make a large clump which can be divided in subsequent years. Also drops seed when happy, but seedlings are easy to remove.
foliage grows to 2′ and the flowers float above. Full sun to full shade.
