Rising gracefully from rosettes of emerald-green, hairy leaves, Tellima grandiflora unveils tall spikes adorned with bell-shaped flowers in shades of white or greenish-white, casting a delicate allure from May to July. This semi-evergreen perennial offers more than just ornamental charm; its dense foliage serves as excellent ground cover, particularly well-suited for moist, shady environments such as woodland gardens or semi-shaded shrub borders. Valued for its resilience, Fringe Cups thrive even in challenging conditions, finding their niche in areas of dry shade where other plants may struggle. To flourish, they appreciate protection from cold, desiccating winds, ensuring their beauty graces the garden year after year.
