Farfugium lovers, check out Alternative Eden

Most gardeners have never heard of farfugiums. They are wonderful shade-tolerant foliage plants from Japan, and I’ve been in love with them for a number of years. I blogged about them several times before (1 2) and will do another post in the fall.

My UK-based friends Mark and Gaz at Alternative Eden just published a fantastic post about their farfugium collection, which contains almost every cultivar currently available in the West. Rumor has it that Japanese breeders have developed other cultivars that haven’t made it to our shores yet so there’s definitely more to look forward to in the years to come.
