Patrinia monandra

Patrinia monandra is at first sight a rather unassuming plant, but is a longstanding top plant in our garden by virtue of how brilliantly it combines with and enhances everything else: from hot fiery reds and oranges, to acid yellows, whites and greens and all the shades of pinks and purples in between. It is a tall self supporting plant that has flat heads of many tiny apple green flowers that fade beautifully and have glorious seed heads throughout Winter. It is a biennial but if left to seed will reappear year after year.
