Petasites Japonicus

Fuki… Where to begin?!  Starts off with strange golden globe flowers possibly weeks before any other flowers open in the incredibly early spring.  They smell like wintergreen and attract the earliest bees.  Then emerge massively wide, up to 3’ across, deep deep green round leaves on a thick sturdy stalk.  

 We’ve been told the stalks have great food value, but we haven’t been able to figure out how to cook them in a delicious way just yet.  Leaves can be used as a banana leaf-like element in cooking, as a way to wrap meats and meals to cook over fire.  This plant is revered in Japanese culture as a special culinary plant.  We’ve got more to learn indeed, and are looking forward to deepening our relationship to this special plant.

Size:
Leaves top out at 3' and can continue to spread in shady, moist areas.

Site Preference:
Needs at least partial to nearly full shade.  Cannot handle direct sunlight for very long.  Prefers very moist soils as well.

Hardiness:
Zone 5

You will receive a strongly rooted section of plant with a growing point ready to start its new life in your shady/moist garden area.
