Tellima grandiflora (Fringecup)
A nice woodlander, Fringecup likes damp, open ground.
From the round and scalloped leaves emerge 2’ wands, each bearing 50 or more ½” delightful, pale cream or greenish flowers with pale fringe recumbent on the bell shaped blooms. As the fragrant flowers mature, the fringe turns rosy pink.
Fringecup makes an excellent ground cover as it spreads easily and looks fabulous en masse.
Hummingbirds will thank you for the sweet nectar.
It is found between Alaska and California, in coastal and interior ranges and into Idaho as well. It does well in USDA zones 5-10.
Mature plants can be divided.
I adore this plant for cutting. The flower stems add height and an airy quality to composed flower bouquets. They are long lasting as well.
