at Digging Dog
Hailing from Yugoslavia, this fast growing perennial is named to honor the famous Hungarian botanist Paul Kitaibel, who was born in 1757. Forging a stately presence with its great clump of tall stems, Kitaibela vitifolia’s very pointed, Maple-shaped dark verdure is a lush backdrop for its large white to tender pink, up-tilted, Mallow-like blooms.
Ideal at the back of the border in somewhat moist, but well drained soil, let Russian Hibiscus mingle with Centaurea ruthenica and Aconitum ‘Stainless Steel’ for an arresting array of foliage form and bloom color.
Size: 5' 0"–6' 0" high x 3' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.
