Is astilboides tabularis a fun plant?
I'd like to plant this with some Wallich's wood fern (Dryopteris wallichiana). Both go to 3 ft+ and are definitly contrasting leaf patterns. I don't have huge beds, but I can afford two 3x3 spaces for the Astilboides.
Is this a plant you have or would like to have in your garden? What about Darmera peltata? I realize there are fabulous tropicals, but I want a perennial.
Do these look out-of-place in a garden?
