Patrinia

Caprifoliaceae
Perennials, Flowers

Native to eastern Asia. Deeply cut or lobed leaves form attractive mounds, but the real show comes in summer, when tall, slender stems produce flat-topped clusters of tiny blossoms. Good in perennial borders. Long-lastingcut flowers. Appreciate rich, well-drained soil. Do notplant near daylilies (Hemerocallis),since Patrinia species serve as the alternate host for daylily rust.
