Beesia calthifolia has light green heart shaped leaves veined with lighter green. Spires of starry white flowers. Evergreen. Awesome in the shade garden.
This species is similar to Beesia deltophylla with glossy, light to mid green, evergreen, heart-shaped leaves tinged in purple when new. The foliage forms dense rosettes and sends up spires of small white flowers in spring. Excellent in well-drained yet evenly moist soil in full or partial shade. One of our most favourite shade plants at Phoenix Perennials.
