Paris japonica is distinct from all other Paris, with its large, white flowers. Once established it will flower regularly and increase, although it does this only slowly. Its short, very stout rhizomes makes a stem 25-80cm tall topped by a whorl of 6-10 leaves. Above the leaves is borne a sublime white flower 8cm in diameter.
This is not a difficult plant but it has a behaviour all its own and distinct preferences. If you ignore these then you may get a nice, 30cm tall plant, if you take notice of them, or combine them, you will get a breathtaking 80cm specimen that will astound you!
Ours are nursery- produced, flowering-sized rhizomes, which are slow to get to this size, hence their price.
Paris japonica likes rich, moist and humus-rich soils in half shade but it now has its own special page with cultivation and notes. This can be found in our members area, available after logging in to your account.
