Boehmeria platanifolia


False Nettle

If you love a good foliage plant or need a plant with tall, strong stems in dry shade, this is the plant for you. Large, uniformly jagged, rounded leaves are arranged in pairs alternately around the stems giving so much visual energy that they demand attention.

A real problem-solver for dry shade that needs some height. Plants are 3-5′ tall and wide. In late summer, tassels of white flowers spill out of the stem tips.

Full-part shade. Deer resistant. Zones 4-8.

4″ tall pot
