Beautiful wide foliage straps on this plant. Does well also in shade. Great accent in a darker garden.

There is something a bit surreal about this plant. A 4" diameter white globe on a 3ft stalk. In an informal setting I suggest you need a group of at least 5 of them spaced around 6" apart. In a formal setting they might work more widely spaced over a pattern of lower plants.
