Darmera peltata is a perennial which grows 3-5 feet tall and is native to mountain stream banks and woodlands from southwestern Oregon to northern California. It has small, pink-to-white flowers in rounded clusters which appear atop thick hairy stems in early spring before the foliage emerges. Large, rounded, medium-green leaves that can reach 24 inches in size appear after the plant has bloomed. Upward facing leaves typically collect and hold small pools of rain water. The umbrella plant is a big plant that needs a substantial space. Its bold foliage definitely attracts attention and looks great when combined with ferns, hostas, grasses and Solomon's seal. Darmera peltata attracts bees and butterflies, is good as a cut flower and has pleasant fall color. Umbrella plant grows best in moist or wet soil in light to dappled shade. With adequate moisture it will tolerate clay. Grows to 5 Ft tall, Zones 5+.
