Melianthus comosus (new)

One of the hardiest Melianthus species, being generally found in the drier inland areas of South Africa, though perfectly amenable to cultivation in the UK, if not too desperately cold. The grey pinnate heavily serrated foliage is smaller than that of M. major and hairy. Clusters of red flowers in summer, followed by inflated pods. Sun and well drained soil.

Melianthus major

Melianthus major

A stunning foliage plant with huge grey-blue serrated foliage like nothing else. Usually treated as herbaceous, but can be a woody shrub in mild areas. Plant in a sunny spot against a wall and mulch in winter, though I don't bother mulching and have no problems. Will make a plant 1.5 x 1.5m in one season, if happy and at its very best in autumn.
