A winter leaf rosette in Cumbria. These plants are identical to those in the webmaster's garden- in dry east coast Fife - except they are twice the size entering their second winter! A humid climate and good growing conditions produce this superb growth. This plant is a metre across with Annabelle (granddaughter) for scale. These easily grown plants make a brilliant show in a winter garden(and seed is readily available and germinates easily) and were once used as bedding plants iin Glasgow.
