Disporopsis - Growing Guide

Growing Disporopsis perneyi

This new addition to our catalogue grows as a rhizomatous evergreen perennial. It originates from the upland forests of China and is closely allied to polygonatum as is obvious from its habit. However it is a member of the lily and lily-of-the-valley families as well.

It likes to be grown in partial shade in moist but well drained soil which is compost rich or leafy. Not quite a bog plant but fairly close.

D. perneyi grows flowering spikes to about 15in and flowers in May and June. The flowers are single or in pairs and are lemon scented and white with pale green outer tips. They hang down under waxy dark green veined leaves and are slightly reflexed.

This plant is fully hardy in any woodland garden and is most easily propagated by dividing the rhizomes in spring.
