A recent introduction, 'Chocolate Wing' is aptly named for the deep cocoa tinted palm-like leaves that emerge in spring, crinkled and leathery, before maturing to dark green in summer crowned with tall feathery spikes packed with individual rose-pink flowers.  

Perfect for adding striking colour, texture and boldness to a moist border, its architectural foliage contrasts handsomely with that of Astilbe, Aruncus dioicus and moisture-tolerant Iris.  It look particularly eyecatching planted close to water, where its reflected strong silhouette can be displayed.  It thrives on a moisture retentive soil in either partial or light shade, but can tolerate full sun if the soil is consistently damp enough.
