About

Melianthus major is one of the best foliage plants you can grow itis supremely architectural with deeply cut glaucous  grey-blue leaves with a toothed edge. It looks great first thing in the morning covered in dew. Melianthus has an amazing smell if you rub the leaves or spray it with water on a hot summers day you will smell peanut butter! The flowers of melianthus are redish brown spikes but its the foliage you grow it for.

Origin

South Africa

Planting and care

Best planted in full sun and rich soil mulch in winter but plant deep 3-4 inches deeper the pot soil height i have found it always hardy if planted this way.
