Product Description

A late flowering perennial, Kirengeshoma brings colour to areas of the garden that are positioned in dappled shade, when all other plants are fading into their winter hibernation.

A member of the hydrangea family, Yellow Wax Bells (as it is sometimes called), emerges from its winter sleep in spring as a thick clump of hydrangea-like leaves which form a spectacular feature in their own right, before sending up slender ebony stems topped by its fat, waxy buds.

These stems arch gracefully as the buds swell and finally burst to reveal its sophisticated waxy blooms, each with a lustrous sheen that sparkles in sunlight.

As the seasons turn to autumn, the bright green leaves turn to gold and round seed capsules form, further adding to the beauty of this plant.

Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, for stunning displays for many years to come.

Supplied as an established plant in a 9cm pot, Kirengeshoma is fully hardy, and will return each year, getting bigger and better.

Plant Information

Top Tips

Don't use animal manure to improve the soil - woodland plants such as Kirengeshoma prefer leafmould as a soil conditioner.

Care Guide

Planting Advice for Kirengeshoma koreana:

  • Best grown in moist, fertile, humus-rich soil, plants can be positioned in sun or partial shade and will also tolerate drier conditions. Lime-free soil is preferred.
  • Before planting, prepare the soil by digging over and removing any weeds. Kirengeshoma does not like to dry out. Incorporate plenty of leafmould when planting and water well in dry weather especially newly established plants.
  • When planting a number of perennials, arrange them on the surface so you can see how they will look before planting.
  • Individually knock out each plant from its container. Look at the roots if they are circling around the compost, it is best to tease them out. To do this, push your fingers into the rootball along the bottom edge and pull. Do this in a couple of places. This should encourage the roots to spread into the surrounding soil.
  • Next use a trowel or spade to create a hole just deep and wide enough to set in the rootball.
  • The aim is to bury just the roots, leaving the bases of the stems (when in growth in summer) or the shoots (in spring) above ground.
  • Firm back around the soil, using your hand for small clumps and your heel on larger areas.
  • Water in well to settle the soil and prevent drying out.

 

Aftercare for Kirengeshoma koreana:

  • Water well after planting until established.
  • Congested or overgrown clumps can be lifted and divided in spring.

 

Pruning Kirengeshoma:

  • After flowering, plants can be cut back to tidy them or left for autumn colour and form.
