Bed K: Plant 03
Syn. ‘Daruma’ & ‘Daruma Nori Utsugi’
It is often called a dwarf cultivar but it can grow up to 1.8m tall, but normally around 1.2m. The flower heads have many ray-flowers with fewer sterile florets. The flowers appear early and appear almost a month earlier than other H. paniculata cultivars, the white sepals age to rose, sometimes by July in the south. Leaves are shiny.
