Cauliflower-like flowers emerge in early spring, followed by the main show: amazingly large leaves are over a foot wide, with gorgeous curls that stand like lily pads all summer long. Sun or shade, but requires more moisture in the sun to prevent wilting. Slowly spreads by runners to fill a large area. A rare WOW plant that will make your friends stop and stare!
