Crambe cordifolia


Big, bold and beautiful, Crambe cordifolia is all about presence and drama with huge 6 foot high and four foot wide clouds of white flowers.

Give Crambe cordifolia enough space so that it can spread out its dramatic two foot long leaves and raise its strong, branched panicles of white flowers that look like a giant baby’s breath up to 6 feet high and 4 feet wide or more! For those who like large, powerful, architectural plants. This is a "go big or go home" kind of perennial.
